We have now sent the funds to complete the building of 2 new classrooms at the Ling Gesar School, Manduwala, Dehra Dun
This school is not only for the Tibetan refugees but caters for all the Indian children in the surrounding poor villages. It was set up 20 years ago and before 2003 was near to closure due to lack of funds. Since 2003 a charitable trust in Germany has been set up under the guidance of Ringu Tulku: Bodhicharya Huttenried – Dharma-Tor Charitable Trust, Germany.
To help maintain and improve the education and health facilities, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has also asked Rigul Trust, with its UK charity registration status, to help fund these projects.
