The Kailash Bodhi School was established in 2005 to preserve the language and culture of the Tibetan (Mugumpa) people, an indigenous population who have lived for centuries at the foot of the Himalayas in Nepal. Watch the video below to see our Mugumpa children perform Pangyi Metok.
In 2005 KBS Jumla opened its doors to twenty-five children. Today there are around 500 children attending the school.
It is a multi-faith school, which also caters for Dalit (untouchable caste) children from the Talchaur and Kulal Bada Dalit villages nearby. Many of the parents of children who attend KBS Jumla are both illiterate and impoverished.
The In Time Trust provides classrooms, teachers, text books, stationery and school uniforms so these children can receive the education they need to break the cycle of poverty that exists there.
The school has a pre primary section - Nursery, Lower Kindergarten and Upper Kindergarten, a primary section - Classes 1 to 7 and a senior section Classes 8 to 10.
