Let's Get Them To School: Send 500 Tibetan Nomadic Girls to School

The following video about a Golok school is produced by A.S. I. A.  A.S.I.A.'s newest initiative is to find sponsors for 500 Tibetan nomadic girls. Educating girls, of course, is the best kind of aid there is that can transform the lives of whole regions.
A girl who has studied has more possibilities of choice and when she becomes a woman will be aware of her rights. Her education will have positive effects on the whole society: she will be advantaged in setting up economic activities, more protected from disease and exploitation and her studies have positive effects on the health and well-being of her children.
In our case, educating a Tibetan nomad girl has even more value - to support a civilization in danger of extinction.The Tibetan nomads, who have survived for thousands of years in extreme weather conditions, are now at risk of extinction. Their disappearance would permanently destroy the very origin of Tibetan culture. For this reason we ask you to help us, with 25 euro per month, to allow a child to study and a culture to survive.   for more
