STUDENT SPONSORSHIP OPTIONS

Give the Gift of Education

The new school year in Nepal begins in April 2018, and we have many new children at SMD School, as well as new monks enrolled at the SMD Branch School, who require sponsorship.

Below is a listing of our current sponsorship rates. However, please know that donations of any amount are always greatly appreciated and are extremely helpful. We also welcome co-sponsorship with a friend or group to make up a whole sponsorship.

Spread the word! Please share this information with friends who may be interested in sponsoring a child. Many thanks for your generous support.

SPONSORSHIP FOR SMD STUDENTS (YEARLY RATE)

Sponsors will enjoy receiving an annual letter from their SMD sponsored student.

  • Boarding Student: $1,185 (covers room and board, education expenses, uniform, clothes, and medical and dental care)

  • Day Student: $530 (covers education expenses, uniform, and a hot lunch)

  • Senior Student: $1,610 (SMD is too crowded to offer grades 11 & 12. As such, a select number of students get chosen to live at SMD while completing their education elsewhere in Kathmandu. This covers most of the room & board and tuition expenses.)

  • SMD General Donation: Donations to SMD in general help us meet the needs of all students, especially when we fall short of full sponsorship for the year.

 

SPONSORSHIP FOR MONASTICS (YEARLY RATE)

To dedicate the merit of their generous support, sponsors of a monk or nun will have prayers said for them by the monastics during the nine-day grand Mahakala Puja in Jan/Feb, during the auspicious time of Saga Dawa in the month of June or on the auspicious day of Guru Rinpoche.

  • Basic Monk and Nun: $300

  • SMD School Monk: $580

  • SMD School Nun: $580

  • Shedra Monk / Shedra Nun: $750
