Kailash Hostel Phuntsokling, Visit by our Sponsor Sylvia Billich in January 2017
Mrs. Sylvia Billich from Hilden / Germany has been supporting the Kailash projects for many years, mainly through sponsorships. It is very important for her to get to know her "children" personally.
In January this year she therefore visited her godson at Phuntsokling in Odisha / India. She wrote a very interesting report about her journey there and her stay at Kailash Internat Phuntsokling.
Please find her report here (in German).
Mrs. Sylvia Billich had already supported our project at Darchen. She also visited her godchild there:
We are so grateful to her for her long-standing and always so generous support!
Rundbrief (Yearly Report) 18, 2016, Tibetan Ngari Korsum Association Switzerland
Supervision Visits 2016 at the Kailash Hostel Phuntsokling
The association has in its projects always monitored with great care that donations are used in a correct and transparent manner. Tsering Wangdak Batsang and Konchok Chugtsang therefore in September again visited the Kailash Hostel.
The completion of the dormitories for boys and girls and the construction of the residential home for the members of staff they found carried out in a very satisfactory manner.
The students they found very happy, healthy and motivated to learn. The students are very satisfied with life at the Kailash hostel. Both the teachers as well as the parents have informed us that generally the learning progress of the students staying at the hostel is much better than that of other students.
Tsuma Tsultrim Sangmo, a Tibetan nun, in June last year joined the suppervisory team of the Kailash hostel. She is teaching the students in philosophy, Tibetan language and grammar. She also takes care of ethical aspects and problems of the students. Both the team as well as the students appreciate her contribution very much.
25 Years Tibetan Ngari Korsum Association Switzerland!
25 years ago, in June 1990, the members of twentyfive Tibetan families resident in Switzerland met in Ziegelbrücke to establish an association for families from Ngari, Westtibet.
The primary goal was to preserve and maintain Tibetan culture and also to solve problems of integration in Switzerland. We also had our thoughts on how we could support our Tibetan compatriots in Tibet, especially in education, health and environment.
Today the association can look back to 25 years of successful activity. Without the generous support from our sponsors this would not have been possible!
