On Thursday, May 27 — Buddha Purnima Day — a powerful dust storm tore the roof completely off Siddhartha School’s nursery class building. Thankfully, because of the holiday school was not in session and no one was hurt. The damage is extensive as you can see in the photo.

Damage to the nursery class building is extensive.

The walls of the building are damaged and the roof is a total loss. We should know soon what the cost of repairs will be, and will post more info here as it comes to us from Ladakh.

At Khen Rinpoche’s request, Siddhartha School Project is alerting as many of our friends as possible about the situation. We will be most grateful for any donations to help with these emergency repairs. A special Donate button on the Siddhartha School Project home page ( allows you to conveniently make a secure PayPal donation that will be earmarked automatically for the repair effort.
