Our Story

Help Siddhartha's Children

For over 40 years, the Siddhartha project has been dedicated to welcoming and protecting underprivileged children in the Himalayas, engaging in countless humanitarian projects in India, Sikkim, Nepal and Bhutan.   Right now, urgent support is needed for Kangyur Rinpoche’s Monastery in Darjeeling and Tenzin Gyatso’s School in Jaigon.     

 At Kangyur Rinpoche’s Monastery, the most pressing needs are the restauration of various facilities and access to water, which has been particularly difficult. Completing Tenzin Gyatso’s School, including a section that will be exclusively for girls, is also part of the campaign objectives.      

Kangyur Rinpoche’s Monastery - Darjeeling, India

Kangyur Rinpoche’s Monastery (Kangyur Rinpoche Trust) currently houses 100 children and young adults, and provides for all their needs: education, accommodation, food, clothing and medical care. The classes range from kindergarten to the 8th grade, and accept children from the poorest and most remote regions in the area.    

Right now, we are starting to build new sanitary facilities, dormitories and laundry facilities and renovating some of the buildings damaged by the earthquake in 2016, namely dormitories, electrical installations, water supplies, security infrastructures, classrooms, the temple, etc.  

        

H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso’s School - Jaigon, India   

This school, located on the border between Bhutan and India, will be starting its activities very soon, providing access to education to over 300 disadvantaged children.      

Over the past two years, the Siddhartha project has supported the construction of the school, which is now in the final phase of completion.   It is our profound wish that this school will eventually include a section devoted exclusively to girls’ education. This is very important because, unfortunately, in these remote areas, girls do not yet have the same opportunities as boys.    


About us - Siddhartha    

Siddhartha was founded by Kyabje Kangyur Rinpoche, one of the most respected Tibetan masters of the twentieth century.      

In the early sixties, Kangyur Rinpoche settled with his family in Darjeeling, India, where he founded a small monastery. His intention was to welcome the many orphans of the Tibetan community in exile, as many Tibetans, when they arrived in India, were faced with extremely difficult living conditions.     

Kangyur Rinpoche tirelessly upheld the four pillars of his compassionate activity: protecting abandoned or needy children, providing medical assistance and support to the sick and those in need of material support, treating the elderly and disabled, and helping travelers who came from far off lands.   

After his death in 1975, his sons - Tulku Pema Wangyal Rinpoche, Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche and Rangdrol Rinpoche - have continued their father's vision through various projects, and in particular the Siddhartha project.      


On behalf of all these children, we would like to thank you for your care and support!
