As we celebrate our first year of marriage, we have much to be grateful for, especially our loving community of family and friends scattered across the planet.

To mark our first wedding anniversary, we continue a tradition of giving that we hope will always be a part of our lives together. This year we will be supporting the education of young Tibetan children who live in the Tsum Valley, a region of Nepal where the population is ethnically Tibetan. Providing education to these children is the primary passion and aim of Lama XXXX, a Tibetan monk who currently lives in Kathmandu but is from the Tsum Valley. The parents of Tsum Valley have requested Lama XXX to find teachers for their children who can provide education in Tibetan language and culture, so they can grow up with a strong connection to their heritage and able to speak the language of their parents and their ancestors.

The Tsum Valley communities, including the schools, are neglected by the government of Nepal because of the population’s “non-native” Tibetan ethnicity. Lama XXX has hired four teachers to serve the educational needs of about 60 children living in villages that are spread out across the valley. He recently lost his main sponsor for these teachers, and so we have committed to helping him find the funds he needs for the next year. Each teacher is paid an annual salary of $2000. We will be donating $1000 and hope to raise additional funds from our family and friends to at least cover the salaries of two teachers for the next year, meaning we hope to raise an additional $3000.

Thank you in advance for any support you can provide, and let us know if you'd be interested in making a trip to the Tsum Valley to visit the kids we are supporting!
