The amount payed to the sponsorship finances the cost of the education, and room and board of all the students of our school in general. Your contribution does not go directly to one child, but maintains the school, and aids in bettering the conditions for all the children in school. This includes education, room and board, clothing, scholastic materials, and healthcare assistance.
The endeavors of this new project will concentrate on fund-raising for the construction costs of a series of solar-powered greenhouses; which will enable year-round cultivation of vegetables, as well as medicinal plants for the school’s clinic.
The province of Kham, where the school is located, is afflicted by very cold winters, and strong winds that impede any agricultural activity. Any available foods are scarce in this season, and very highly priced.
On the other hand, the basic diet of the children is comprised of cereal, and meat and fat to maintain body heat in cold weather, but lacks fresh fruit and vegetables. This is detrimental to the nutritional value of the children’s diets, which in some severe cases present pathologies of malnutrition, growth anomalies, or illnesses related to the digestive system.
Another aspect is that the area is donned with high luminosity, where solar energy can be used as a source of heating. The quality of the soil is good, allowing for high quality crops and produce.
In order to improve the present situation, Karuna Dana has focused on the general objective of installing a series of green houses, 6 total, of solid construction, and that takes advantage of solar energy.
This will provide the school with year-round fruits and vegetables, thus, balancing the diet of the schoolchildren and consequently, bettering their health.
The provision of medicinal plants to the clinic for the preparation of medicine, which comes around to better service to the patients, that come not only from the school, but from the surrounding area, as well.
Our objective: Contribute to the better health and well-being of the villages of the valley and infant population of the school.
7.000 people will be the direct beneficiaries.
More than 400 schoolchildren. Faculty and employees of the school: 32 persons. Clinic: 9 persons. Neighboring residents that use the services of the clinic, of more than 6,000 residents.
Cost and Finances
The total cost of the installation is estimated at 7,200€, by taking into account the cost of construction of each greenhouse, materials, and work hours of construction teams hired from local area. Each green house will embark a crop area of 60 square meters, and will serve the yearly alimentary needs of 80 people. For each green house, there will be a necessary re-enforced foundation, double, re-enforced walls, ventilation, and roofing that adapts to the strong winds, cold and snow endemic to the area.
Karuna Dana is an NGO that lacks state funding, or sponsors. That is why we count on the generosity of the people who feel that this is a close project. Any help we can get brings us closer to achieving the project and to benefit the children of Karuna Dana school.
The creation of a medical center in the province of Kham, in Tibet will facilitate primary attention to the inhabitants of the valley, where it’s located, and to the nearby schoolchildren by healthcare practitioners, all in benefit of their precarious health.
There is no running water in the consultation rooms, which obliges the doctors to boil water daily, and store it in containers to use within the clinic.
This center is the only chance the valley populace has to be treated with dignity in case of illness. Aside from emergency care, primary attention, and family medicine, there is also buccal/dental care. Principally, extractions.
The doctor’s apartments do not have running water, so they must carry water by hand from a faucet outdoors to the stove indoors.
KARUNA DANA intends to develop a water supply and sanitizing project for the medical center; with which the following goals are reached:
Better health of the school children and valley population, healthcare practitioners of the clinic, and school faculty.
Prevention of hydric illnesses, such as diarrhea and infections.
