Many people in Nepal live in very remote hill areas, doing subsistence farming and occasional work as cooks or porters during the trekking season. They struggle to provide education, food and accommodation for their children. Monastic schools in Nepal are run by monks to help the under privileged children of these families.In 2015, Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake which killed 9000 people and made thousands more homeless. Thousands of children were orphaned by this earthquake and with nowhere to go, were taken in by the monastic schools. These schools struggled to cope with the destruction left by this earthquake which destroyed their buildings and left them with limited resources.
We at Tuff were moved by the plight of these children. Since 2015, we have been involved with and supported the Pal Ewam Namgyal Monastic School at Pokhara Nepal, providing them with a filtration plant for clean drinking water, solar lighting equipment, food, clothing and school uniforms.
We have supported the rebuilding effort with funds and today are very happy to see a new and modern school building standing at the same place as the destroyed one.
We are privileged to help these strong, beautiful and determined children, who despite all their hardships have not lost their spirit and are determined to learn and progress. Our small and humble way to give back, and in keeping with our belief in fostering thoughts of kindness and concern for the well-being of others.
