The Tapriza School

Since 1998 the Tapriza NGO Switzerland supports a boarding school in the remote district Dolpo in north-western Nepal. The school gives a Tibetan speaking minority access to education and offers the possibility to learn their own language, history and culture along side the national curriculum of Nepal.

A constituent element of the school is the Bon religion which is widely practiced in Dolpo. Therefore, the school is named after an erstwhile Bon master Tapriza (tib. Ta-pi-hri-tsa). The school is, however, open to children of all religions and in the meantime 192 children are enrolled. Locally the school is supported by the officially recognised non-profit organisation Tashi-D. Residents of the surrounding villages comprise the board.
