Ngayur Sangacholing School

Job Done!

This is a historic project and does not require any extra donations at the moment.

The Ngayur Sangacholing School in Payung village is only 45 minutes walk from the busy town of Kalimpong near to Darjeeling,an important bazaar town for traders from Sikkim, Bhutan, Tibet and the plains of Benga. In 2006, they requested funding to build an additional classroom for their expanding School, which is run by local monks and owned by the Ringpoche Ngawang Hochok. The school is ambitious and hopes eventually to have up to 32 classrooms, to cater for the growing number of pupils wishing to attend. The Juniper Trust donated £1000 for the construction of one classroom.

In April 2007, Students from King Edward V1 Five Ways School (UK) visited the school construction project. The students got out paintbrushes to add finishing touches to the newly built classrooms and help clear the ground for the foundations of the main school building. The British students found it quite an experience meeting and working alongside the local children of Kalimpong.
