Sponsor a Tibetan child’s education – You can transform a child’s life!
My name is Sonam Dorjee and I came from Tibet in 1998 from Kirong village (Tibet). Currently I am working in Kathmandu (Nepal) in a carpet factory and my beautiful wife is looking after our two daughters, Tenzin Dolkar and Tenzin Yangdol; who are turning 5 and 3 respectively. After few months, Tenzin Dolkar will be in UKG and Tenzin Yangdol will be in nursery.
As a father, it’s my responsibility to provide them a good education but as a carpet worker, I don’t have such a huge salary, just enough to buy a monthly food and to pay house rent. Right now, I sent my daughters to nearby school and to manage the school fee, I do extra work in carpet factory on Saturday. However this will not last long as each passing years means, their grade will climb up and which ultimately means more expenses. Which I couldn’t able to effort therefore I would like to request you to help me to continue my daughters education. Thank you.
