Taltuleswory Educational Costs for 2014-15

Both Sabina and Saugat have moved up to the next grade–she to grade 3 and he to 4.

At the time their sponsorship started in December 2013, the adjusted contribution to their education covered the costs of their uniform, tie, belt etc. as well as supplies for the rest of the academic year (of 2013-14). Since their uniforms, for instance, don’t need replacing, the funds needed this academic year is considerably less.

Attached below is the letter from the Principal with those details and its translation.

Don't leave me hanging...say something....

About me..in short

I am a Tibetan-Buddhist, one-time International Chemistry/Science teacher with a Jesuit education in a Hindu country (Nepal), an international education in a catholic country (Italy), a liberal arts education in the bastion of freedom and democracy (the US), with teacher-training down under (Australia), but whose choice of musical instrument is Australian (the Didjeridoo), choice of sports is American (Ultimate Frisbee), choice of dance genre is Latin American (Merengue and Salsa), and yet, still has faith in the permanence and power of change!
