Rigul Clinic

Seasons Greetings and Gratitude from Rinpoche

I would like to take this auspicious occasion of Christmas and New Year 2019 to thank all the generous people who helped Rigul Trust for so many years to build and sponsor the school, clinic and shedra in Rigul area of Tibet and other beneficial activities.


My grateful thanks to the founder and the trustees of the past and present and all those who helped in many different ways to make the works of the trust functional. 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I pray that you all have a healthy, happy and harmonious year ahead and all your positive wishes be fulfilled.

Happy New Year 2019

Rigul Children Telling Stories

Dear Friends Worldwide,

On November 18th, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche posted the following news from Rigul on the Bodhicharya International Facebook page:

“A new special program that started in Rigul is now being appreciated by many other places in Tibet. In “Rigul Children Telling Stories,” the children tell all the stories, legends and jokes that they learnt from their parents and grand parents. This program was organised by Rigul School. It is a good way to preserve the old folk culture of the land, a culture which is slowly being forgotten.”
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Rigul Trust is celebrating ten years of raising funds for education, welfare projects and poverty relief among the Tibetan communities of Rigul and other Himalayan regions.

Over the last decade we have funded the children’s education at Rigul School, including text books, boarding costs, teachers and cooks salaries as well as two free hot school meals daily.

In addition, the Rigul Trust also covers running costs for the health clinic, including the salaries of Dr Chuga and Ani Choden the nurse.

On top of that we funded a dining room so the the children do not have to eat outside, built the first ever toilets in Rigul and financed an underground water pipe, which carries water from the stream to five taps within the village.

The Trust has also donated towards disaster relief in Yushu, Ladakh, Sikkim and Nepal.

A very big thank you. Your generosity has helped thousands of people over the ten years.

If you would like to donate to the school in Rigul, please visit www.rigultrust.org and click on DONATE. If you donate with the Celebration option a kind sponsor is offering 25% extra on your donation up to £40,000 GBP

Be happy, be joyful, go well,
Margaret Richardson

Rigul Monastery has a new car

Dear Friends,

At last we bring good news! Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has just sent us a photo of the brand new car/ambulance that Dr Chuga and his team bought on Saturday 12 August.

They are so pleased with the car. It will help a lot of people getting to hospital which is one or two days journey.

The car can help Dr Chuga visit patients near and far, sometimes several hours drive. The car/ambulance is robust and built for rough terrain in the mountains.

The car can take five passengers.

The open back of the car will be used for collecting medicinal herbs from he mountains, hillsides and valleys in Tibet as well as transporting goods and materials.
