Students in the
Chiwong monastery

In the Chiwong monastery, CPET supports the training of 20 students and also builds a new hostel for them.

WHY HAS CPET
STARTED THIS PROJECT?

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.

WHAT HAS CPET DONE
IN THE PAST?

Because the student's living conditions were poor, CPET started working for a new hostel in the autumn of 2014. Due to the earthquakes of 2015, the original hostel, which was being renovated at the time, was badly hit. It has completely collapsed and had to be completely rebuilt. Meanwhile, all students and monks stayed in a makeshift tent camp in very primitive conditions, at temperatures that dropped deep below freezing during the night.

The new building is now earthquake-resistant and has only one ground floor to limit the risk of damage in a new earthquake. In each room there are two beds, two bedside tables and a wardrobe. The walls, the ceiling and the floor were covered with wood to keep the heat inside. you can find more information on: chiwongmonastery.com

We work together with the local community and use local materials to support the local economy and create jobs.
