SUPPORT US

We created the Serkong School in order to help support poorer students, by providing free room and board. The school presently has 310 students, but the old school building is need of renovation. The growing student population also needs an additional dormitory (hostel) building, and funding for these efforts is urgently needed. The total cost of the renovation and expansion projects is estimated to be 95.55 million Indian rupees (Rs 955.5 lacs). The institution has limited income, and the students' parents and guardians cannot afford to contribute much.

NOTE OF GRATITUDE

Tabo Monastery would like to thank all those kind and generous people who have, over the years, given their time, money, skilled work and efforts into helping Tabo Monastery preserve its cultural heritage and develop the opportunities for the spiritual and secular education of the community.
