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,
Founder of Rigul Trust
