THE STORY:

G.I.F.T. - stands for Girls Institute for Technology. The villages that lie in this region of the Himalayan mountains are some of the most remote in the world - only accessible on foot or on horseback. Life for disabled children in these villages is like living in double exile: As Tibetans they living in limbo and as children with disabilities they are looked upon by their families as bad luck. And as girls, their fate is even worse -quite literally thrown away to make it on their own -somehow.
THE G.I.F.T. is created by a young and ambitious Tibetan lama - living in India -who is taking on the awesome task of rescuing these girls one at a time to give them a safe place to live, access to education, and provide them with the invaluable gift of independence and skills so they can make their way in the world.
