Tibetan Children's Village

Youth Hostel, Mundgod

The Central School for TIbetans in Doeguling TIbetan settlement, Mundgod, is the only school in the south that has all the 3 streams (Science, Commerce and Arts) and Vocational stream at the Senior Secondary level which attracts many children to the school. But the existing hostel is unable to provide accommodation for all children seeking admission. On the other hand, since there are parents moving out of the settlements especially during the winter months for petty business, children are left under the care of their grand parents or with neighbors. As a result, there is lack of proper guidance and supervision of the children in their self studies and home assignments. This often leads to poor performance at the school.

Therefore, the Mundgod hostel was built to cater to the above needs and particularly those under our OUTREACH PROGRAM who form the neediest cases in the settlements. This was made possible through the generous funding support of the Autonomous Provinz Bozen/Bolzano, Italy and inaugurated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in the presence of the President of South Tyrol Dr. Luis Durnwalder on 10th January 2008. The hostel can accommodate around 200 students.
