Seng Girls Home cool but cozy

Fortunately this year’s winter has been a little less severe than normal. Not so much snow has fallen and there have been fewer major disturbances or upheavals in the town. Consequently, yak dung prices dropped and so we stocked up on extra fuel (used mostly for cooking and some heating) – see picture 1.  It’s possible it may snow more in April, so it’s good to have extra provision while the price is cheap. Drying clothes in these icy winter months is still a challenge and can take days as all is always just frozen stiff – picture 2. Here you can also see (picture 3) the food ration for March that we bought in January.

All the girls appreciate the opportunity that they may study and work very hard to achieve highest results (4), but there is always time for play and exercise to keep warm even in the snow (5).

Of course during the winter all outside and interior renovations stopped (6 shows the multi-purpose/indoor playground building still under construction). If the weather holds and continues to be warmer than usual we actually might be able to resume the construction work as early as mid-April. The girls are certainly looking forward to having an indoor playing room and extra space to dance, sing and exercise.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of our work and for keeping the dreams of our many girls alive for another year  (written by Dockpo Tra – Founder and Director, Seng Girls Home).
