Help Make a Difference in the Himalayan Region

Our Goal, Vision & Commitment

Register & Help Make Change

Volunteer, Participate, or Donate

Tara Bodong Foundation (Netherlands), is registered in the Netherlands as Stichting Tara Bodong (NL). It is a non-profit charitable foundation, that supports humanitarian projects in Northern India and Nepal. 

Our mission is to improve the living conditions of the local people in the Himalayan regions of India and Nepal, and help them break out of the vicious circle of hardship which often characterises their lives. We do this through (financial and non-financial) donations, capacity building and knowledge transfer. Our main project is the Lumla Bodong Nunnery/Girls’ School, which is a shelter for girls in Lumla, Arunachal Pradesh, NE India. This facility houses and provides supplementary education to poor and orphaned young girls. Lumla is a tiny village located in a remote area in the Himalayan mountains, east of Bhutan, bordering Tibet (China).

How You Can Help

I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE

A number of selected schools in the Netherlands are currently taking part in a campaign to collect used or discarded mobile phones, iPods, tablets and accessories, which will be sold for recycling. This campaign was launched on International Day of the Girl Child on 11th October 2019, an initiative of  the United Nations.

We would like to thank all the schools who are generously giving their time and energy to this project. This is an on-going project. If you or your school would like to join, please send us an email at info@tarabodong.org and we'll be happy to help you get it off the ground!

100% of the profits raised through our "Give a Phone . Help a Girl"  campaign will go directly to the Bodong Nunnery/Girls’ School in Lumla, North-East India. We are now raising funds to build a retaining wall and an extra room to be used as a prayer hall. This extra room could also be rented out for community meetings as an extra source of income for the facility.

Sharing our Story

Roland Holst College, Hilversum

Sept 2019:

Students got an opportunity to see pictures and ask questions about what it's like growing up without shopping malls and trendy brands. Where the toilet is outside the home, where electricity and warm, running water cannot be taken for granted. At the end of a rewarding day, several students volunteered to help Tara Bodong with our social media and organise their own fund raisers. All in all, a very satisfying day with a great turnout!
