All our children come from poor families. They need to be fed, dressed and kept healthy.

.

They feel hugely privileged, and they work very hard to deserve what they are given. We need your support to see them through their secondary education.

We wish to make our monks citizens of the world. For this, they'll need to be fully equipped to meet its challenges.

.

Computer skills are an essential requisite to achieve this. 

.

Thanks to the enormous kindness of our generous sponsors, two fully-equipped computer labs have been installed and are  serving our children's educational needs. Needless to say, our monks are elated and hugely grateful.

.

Our computer labs now boast 17 desktop computers, 24 laptops  and a printer. Class groups take turns in holding their computer studies classes in the labs.
