Sponsoring a Child from the Hostel
Thank you for helping make a miracle happen for a very special child! Your sponsorship will make a difference and help break this terrible cycle of poverty. By becoming a sponsor you can make an immediate difference in a child's life and see tangible results. If you decide to sponsor a child for more than a year, you will be entitled to become a member of the Bridge Program. Benefits of this program include:
Letters from your child and an updated photo & academic report card each year.
The opportunity to write to your child as often as you like, as well as send birthday and other presents.
Learning about Buddhist philosophy and meditation at the Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre.
Receiving personalized correspondence from your sponsored child and regular updates of his/her academic progress.
We pledge that your donation will be utilized judiciously for the purpose it is meant for. A contribution of USD 700 per year will cover food, clothing, medication and education of a child. If you decide to sponsor a child, we will send you the child's case history and photograph. Funds are also needed for the expansion of school and hostel facilities to accommodate more children.
Sponsoring a young monk / nun
We take this opportunity to earnestly appeal to all generous-minded brothers and sisters to help implement the nunnery. A contribution of USD 700/- per year will cover food, clothing, medication and education of a young monk/nun. We also need funds for the expansion of the physical facilities such as a dining hall, classrooms and accommodations to take in more nuns in the future
Sponsoring a Day-Boarder / child from our Branch Schools
The School also has many students on its day-boarder's list and also students studying at our Branch Schools in Temisgam and Bodhkharbu who come from very poor families. A sponsorship contribution of USD 300/- per year will pay for the school fees of these needy students.
Sponsoring an Aged and Destitute
The inmates of Mahabodhi Home for the Aged and Destitute are very humble and easy to support with a few requirements. Nevertheless, apart from the basic needs like clothing, shelter, food and medicine, Mahabodhi wishes to provide the inmates of the Home with good facilities to protect them from the rough climate of Ladakh and provide them a safe and warm surrounding. Some of the inmates are urgently in need of better medical facilities like wheel chair, mobile toilet chair or spectacles.
By supporting one of the inmates through a sponsorship of just 30 Euros a month, a lot of improvements can be done and your kind help enables an old person to enjoy the last part of his/her life in a very peaceful and suitable surrounding.
Request to sponsors
We earnestly request all the sponsors please not to send money / expensive items in the letters/parcels for your wards, as the Indian Postal system is very unreliable and most of the letters / parcels are opened on the way.
