New SMD Dance Program
Former SMD student, Tenzin Choesang, has returned to SMD to start an exciting new dance program with the SMD students. Tenzin Choesang is a great dancer and he enjoys working with kids. He worked in the Director’s Office of SMD for some time after he finished his grade 10. After that, he studied Social Work at university and worked at SMD as a Hostel teacher for 4 years.
Dance class for SMD students will be held after school 2 days per week (4 days per week during the long vacation). And Tenzin Choesang is planning to hold dance performances once every 2 months.
Two of our Canadian supporters are generously sponsoring the dance program this year. Salary and materials/supplies for the year amount to CA$3,000 ($2,000 salary) for Tenzin Choesang to run this program.
We are looking for other sponsors to match this first year so that the program can continue beyond one year. $2,000 per year would cover the salary. Our goal is to raise $8,000 so that the program could continue for another 4 years.
