As we discussed earlier and i promised to spend the money on productive project, I thought what could be better to make our younger generation to have on-hand experience and learn through today's technology that too from grass root level. With limited amount i could able to buy only one desktop computer and donated to Home-no-8 students of Tibetan children village Ladakh on behalf of Tibetan Photo Project. They have around 30 students from poor family background,and some are orphan or single parent. They are getting basic computer class only after grade 5th but that too very limited due to large number of students. I am sure that they will definitely make the best use of this system and will prove helpful in their future vision. I personally requested few teachers to visit them often and teach and guide them to how to use. I can feel the joy and their excitement through these pictures hope you like it.
Thanks once again with prayers.
