Earthquakes at Bakhang school, Nepal

Tsagam and Bakhang are small and remote villages in Nepal. Over 125km from Kathmandu, the villages are inaccessible by car and can only be reached by walking a steep mountain path for seven hours.

The villages are home to 60 Tibetan families who make a meagre living through small scale subsistence farming, artefact making and semi-nomadic herding. Each of the villages has a small school for the local Tibetan children.

Prior to 2009, there was only one teacher per school and lessons were taught only in Nepali. In addition to the obvious problems of only having one teacher for a school full of children, the village parents were worried that a lack of Tibetan education would mean their children would start to lose their Tibetan heritage and language skills. The parents felt it was very important for the children to learn to read and write in their own language in order to preserve their Tibetan identity. However, with most families barely eking out a living, funding Tibetans teachers at the schools was out of the question.

Since 2009, Tibet Relief Fund has been providing a grant to cover the cost of salaries for two Tibetan teachers (one at each school). Since that time, attendance has risen as parents feel more comfortable sending their children to school.
