We are working closely with our contacts on site in India and Nepal. Constant communication and transparency are of major importance and ensure that the given aid gets to 100 % to the people in need. This way donators and sponsors can be informed regularly about new developments.
Of course we know all of our contacts and partners personally and are connected to them by this close, confident cooperative work and real friendship.
Sonam Nyandak – Tse Chokling Monastery, Dharamsala
Sonam Nyandak is the director of the Tibetan-Buddhist monastery Tse Chokling, different aid projects, as well with sponsorships for the monks. The main correspondence is processed with him and Sonam Nyandak is providing us with all relevant data concerning the monastery. The donations are administered and handed over by him.
Tenzin Lhamo und Paljor Lama – Briddhim
Tenzin Lhamo and her husband Paljor Lama are running our Nepali NGO Gosainkunda Human Service Welfare Organization. They grew up in Briddhim, the village in Northern Nepal, which we are supporting with our projects. Both come from poor families. Already at the age of 9 Lhamo started working in order to help her poor family. She never has been able to go to school, but with the assistance of her uncle Nyima and friends she taught herself to read and today she even speaks English fluently.
Thanks to a sponsorship Paljor could go to school for 12 years, first in Dhunche, later in Kathmandu. Since his marriage with Lhamo he is working with his father in his shop in Lingling and sometimes he finds also work in road constructions. Nowadays the shop is sustaining the whole family. Paljor’s father is wellknown and respected in the whole are and since he speaks also Tamang he is translating for Lhamo and Paljor when poor people from those villages come to ask us for help.
After almost 9 years working in Dubai in order to support her family, she returned to her home village in 2017, where she is living now with the family of her husband. In 2018 their first son Samdhun has been born, in 2020 the second son Ghakgay Samphel.
They deliver the donations to the recipients and take the sponsored children to the schools for enrollment. Paljor is visiting the familieas from other villages and get a good insight into their situation. They care trustfully for the right use of the donations and provide us with news and photos.
