On August 8th, 2017 Brian Baker will attempt to summit Mt. Quandry, one of the 14,000ft peaks in Colorado. His hope is to use this climb to draw awareness to the struggle at 14,000ft while raising the funds necessary to provide sustanance and educational opportunities for the children of Tibet.
The goal of this campaign is to raise $14,000 for the children of rural Tibet. If 1,000 people donate $14 we can provide the food, clothing, and education necessary to change the lives of a generation.
Meaningful dialogue can happen when the conversation turns to our religious differences. With understanding of other religious beliefs and practices, trust can develop as a first step in cultivating compassion and harmony through understanding within our communities.
To promote the understanding of customs and religious beliefs to nurture harmony, love and kindness in our communities, we will bring together three to promote the understanding of customs and religious beliefs to nurture harmony, love and kindness in our communities.
Education at Elevation is a non-political non-profit committed to improving the lives of Tibetan children living in rural Eastern Tibet. Our vision is to bring hope to the children through education and spiritual growth that will provide them with roots for a brighter future.
The students are children of nomads who live high up in the Tibetan Plateau. Many of them are orphans or come from single-parent homes. Life is tough at 14,000 ft. and educational opportunities scarce. The school provides a safe nurturing home and as well as an education center that fosters personal and intellectual development.
The school is led by the founder, Tulku Sonam Rinpoche who grew in the Kham area where the school was built. Sonam Rinpoche’s desire is to break the tireless cycle of poverty that prevails from generation to generation in this remote land.
The students have many dreams.
We believe that education is the foundation to create a better life.
We believe that kindness transforms lives.
And believe that compassion creates hope.
