With the help of exiled Tibetans in India we have knocked down and rebuilt HOUSE No. 13, which is also called Rinchen Lin, meaning “precious garden”. The house is a dormitory of app. 120 m² for 34 children refugees between 4 and 12 years and was built with sanitary facilities, bedrooms, a living room and a large terrace. The children live in this house with one “mum” who protects them, who dresses them and who takes care about them. At the moment the project is concluded and active.
