The Buddhist philosophy of life is part of daily life in Nepal. Every year children from poor families are entrusted to a monastery. They stay there for a full year and receive a general education in which the philosophy of life of Buddhism occupies an important place.
The Chiwong monastery is located at 3,000 meters, completely closed from the outside world, on a cliff against the flanks of Mount Everest. CPET supports the training of 20 students . Thanks to CPET they can go to school, they get food and housing . When they have completed their secondary studies in the monastery, they can choose to go in a completely different direction or continue their studies in the monastery. Those who stay there can become Lama and thus make a positive contribution to society.
