Completion of Phase II extension of the hostels for the students

We started the Manjushri Education Project in 2012 with the aim to empower the lives of children in Nepal through education. Since then, our project has touched 75 lives.

The above would not have been achieved without the support of Firefly Mission, a humanitarian organisation based in Singapore. This tremendously charitable organization has supported MEP to build two more blocks of reinforced concrete hostels and a block of two adjacent classrooms for MEP. The construction was completed in April 2016 and a opening ceremony was held on April 2. With the extension of the blocks, we are able to sponsor up to 100 children.

 

There have been many challenges along the way. One of them included the 7.8 magnitude earthquake last year which killed over 8,000 people and injured more than 21,000. Hundreds of thousands of people were made homeless with entire villages flattened across many districts of the country.

Since the earthquake last year, MEP has also partnered with Firefly Mission to carry out the critical relief work, which included the provision of temporary shelters, freshly cooked food, temporary schooling, gas stoves and tanks, zinc sheets for construction of homes.

In addition, Firefly Mission and MEP sponsors have also sponsored a mass screening for hepatitis B and vaccination for students, villagers and the monastics. To date, we have vaccinated 1,121 people, out of which 1,075 are children and 31 of them are receiving regular treatment for Hepatitis B.

13043214_1191673674184191_3813459905752116499_n We would like to thank Firefly Mission and all MEP sponsors for their generous donations and supports for the Relief and Rehabilitation project.

 

School Results of our MEP Children

Summary of results of the MEP Nepali Students:
Out of 31 students, except 1 student failed, all the students are passed with very good results. They have improved very much as we go through their results. I am very happy of their tremendous improvements. The 10 students obtained very good percentage and topped in the classes. This time, the Principal of Cardinal International Boarding School, has waived the tuition fees for these 6 students.
  • Regarding the failed student, with consideration from the Principal, he would be attending in the same school this year to repeat. The Cardinal School has waived the school fee for the year. And from our part, we have to pay for examination, stationeries computer fee and uniform.

New admission for the year 2014:

This session(year 2014), we have sellected 7 children from Himalayan Region of Nepali citizenship, come from very poor family back grounds, but these children are very good in their studies. We will send their case history very soon.

Updates on MEP Students in Bhutan

shopping05In Bhutan, when modern schooling in the country first started to expand in the late ‘50s, students for schools, set up in makeshift huts with a few teachers, had to be picked up from the villages.

Parents hid their children, declared some to be not normal, and put forward those, who probably had an inclination towards mischief.

They went to school with perhaps only a single set of clothes, the ones they were wearing, and with nothing on their feet.

Things haven’t changed much in many urban and rural schools.  Today, the trend is such that most parents want to put their children in school as early as possible, or least much earlier than what government schools stipulate (at six years old), so that someone else can take care of the children as they worked.  The logic remains the same – start early, finish early.

Education is free in Bhutan, a country proud of the Gross National Happiness.  BUT all other expenses related to the child is not free.  Uniforms, shoes, socks, stationery,  food in schools and other expenses are not free.

This is where the Manjushri Educational Project comes in.  We can provide the necessary funds to fill up the gaps.  We have purchased school uniforms, shoes, books, stationary, and pocket money to the children to make their education.

Bhutan ChildrenWe have enclosed the receipts of the purchases, and the pictures of happy Bhutanese students receiving a new pair of shoes.

Regular meetings are also held to provide better care and understanding the needs of the children.

YES.  your donation makes a difference.

Give Knowledge and Wisdom this Christmas

During the end of the year, many people would give presents as rewards and thanksgiving to relatives and friends, to show our appreciation and gratitude.

 

Whilst we are doing this, we must remember those who are less fortunate and those who need help to even provide basic education for the children.   The Manjushri Educational Project aims to help poor Nepal and Bhutan children to improve their lives by providing them proper education. Started by Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche of Nyingma Palyul Retreat Center Nepal, we are currently supporting 29 students in Nepal and 16 students in Bhutan.  This is a on-going project for the next 10 years until the children completed secondary school education.

 

The Gift of knowledge and wisdom is most valuable and meaningful.  This project needs your continual support so that more benefits can be generated with the collective wisdom from everyone.  With your help, we can help more children and continue to support them.

We hope you can help to support this meaningful project and share this email with your friends to create awareness, so that more children can get sponsorship.  Donation can be made via Paypal at

Thank you and Merry Christmas.
