Supplies and equipment for the Shedra

The Shedra is taking shape on the outside, but there is still much work still to do on the inside.

As the rooms of the Shedra take form, it is now time to focus on providing supplies and materials to furnish and equip them.

Children are the future of Tibet. They need an education that includes their language and cultural heritage and prepares them for the modern world. The Kilung Community School will provide them with the education they need.

 

For the Kilung Children’s School, a partial list of what is needed includes:
Tables and Seating
Text Books
Writing Materials
Computers/ Technical Equipment
Salaries/training/supplies for teachers

 

  

Donations are needed to furnish and equip the kitchen and dining hall.

Innovative solar cap going up!

One of the most special features of the Kilung Shedra is the solar cap. This large expanse of special glass will cover most of the inner courtyard and will provide passive solar heat for the building. It will create sun-warmed sheltered spaces where students and monks can study during the day, while producing passive heat to the adjacent areas.

From architectural rendering to reality!

Kilung Rinpoche, with the advice of specialized engineers, chose this design to avoid the environmental impact of heating with coal and to minimize costly electric heating bills.

Help build the Community Health Clinic in the Kilung Shedra

This little girl was famous for her “Big Belly” in the community. She was once starving near death, but no one was aware of it.

Her family caught Tuberculosis two years ago, after they gave up their nomad life and moved to town to send their oldest girl to school. During the TB treatment, her mom became pregnant. She decided to stop the medication and save the baby. After the baby was born, she was sent to live with her grandparents, to avoid getting TB transmitted to her. From day 1, she was fed by yak milk.
