Primary Education​​
​Since 2003 we have paid for the education and board of ​more than 50 children aged from 5 to 12 years, through the donations of some 65 sponsors made through the UK. Most of these were at Sikkim Himalayan Academy at Buriakop, with a smaller number at Mayel Lyang Academy, Dzongu.
Activity
​Late Primary and Secondary Education
Because the boarding schools in Sikkim are primary only, we have had to look over the border to West Bengal, where there is a very long standing school at Kalimpong. Dr Graham's Homes school was founded in 1900 by a Scottish minister, and has developed into one of the best boarding schools in India. Faithful to its roots, it retains a proportion of places at low cost for disadvantaged children.

Although low cost, education and board at Dr Graham's is a much more expensive proposition than the primary education at Sikkim Himalayan Academy.  Some children have been supported by a single sponsor, but mostly each child has several co-sponsors. In 2016 we and the Dutch Trust were supporting 15 children.
