Help complete our new Art School and Mechanic Training complex
Construction of Vista's new Art School and Mechanic Training complex is well under way. Once completed, the ground floor will house a classroom for Tibetan art, a garage for motorbike mechanic training, and a toilet block. The top floor will have living areas for the teachers as well as office space for Vista.
To finish the building and have it decorated in traditional Tibetan style, we are looking for donations.
All the students, including twelve learning to become motorbike mechanics, are ex-nomads. Your support gives young illiterate ex-nomads a better future.
- For $10 you give a student food for 1 month

- For $100 you give education to a student for 3 months
- For $1000 you pay a teacher for 3 months
The teacher for the art school originates from Repkong, an area famous for its Tibetan College of Arts.
He has been based at the famous Kumbum Monastery in Amdo, but out of reverence for Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche agreed to come and give painting instruction at Ju Mohor Monastery.
As soon as the new building has been completed, the teachings will continue in the new classroom. Students will be hosted in our hotel while the teacher will live in the new extension.
