Schools Receive the Books: It’s Story Time for Tibetan Kids!

Just in time for the season of giving here in the West, Tibetan refugee children across India are receiving copies of the Snow Lion books in their school libraries and community centers. We’ve received acknowledgement from the different Tibetan refugee schools of India: the Central School for Tibetans (CST) and Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society (STS) and the SOS Tibetan Children’s Villages (TCV). SOS Tibetan Children’s Villages is a member of SOS Children’s Villages International, an international organization dedicated to providing “quality alternative care for children who cannot live with their biological families.” Our Snow Lion translator Khawabu Lobsang Tgupten graduated from SOS Tibetan Children’s Village Gopalpur, a school that sent us a letter of acknowledgement last week!

On December 12th, the headmistress of Sambhota Tibetan School in the Northern town of Paonta sent us these photos of her students exploring the books.
