2017 Holiday Greeting

Happy Holiday to you
From Education At Elevation (E@E)
No matter what our faith or beliefs the holiday season brings us together with family and friends to celebrate all the things we are thankful for and to share love. Compassion for others is something Education At Elevation believes strongly in and we appreciate each of you that has helped us provide for those in need.
Currently we are building a new school for the children that we have supported over the past 10 years in Eastern Tibet and are remodeling the existing structure to house the elderly that live in the area. The environment is harsh and as the nomadic lifestyle of the people is being lost to modernization the elderly have become vulnerable. The housing will provide a safe and warm place for the elderly to live.
In a fast-changing traditional society it is the young and elderly that can face the most severe challenges. We are working hard to provide a place where the young can receive an education to provide them the skills to support themselves in the future and the elderly a safe place to live where they can continue to be a wise and integral part of the community.
Education At Elevation wishes you and your family a happy and healthy holiday and New Year.

Interfaith Dialogue on Compassion & Kindness Video is now online

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.

Here is the full recording of that dialogue.

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.
