Meet my sponsor child Sherab

Featured Sunday, 06 October 2019 15:17

 I met Sherab on my first trip to Bhutan with my wife. He was only 4 or 5, and as a reincarnate Lama, he held a high position in the small temple.

In 2018 I stopped by the same temple, hoping to see him again, and we found he had moved into town. I explain the rest of the story in video, but long story short, I was really glad to hear his mum had taken steps to get him a full education - despite the difficulty and cost of moving to the larger town.

Via my guide and local contacts, I offered to help them with the costs, to give them a comfortable life, and to make sure he can have a full education until he is old enough to choose for himself - whether to continue to university, or return to become a monk/lama.

He is a lovely kid. I hope you enjoy the video.

If you are interested in the deal I mention in video - We have already raised over $90,000 for charity, it is a great deal and it ends TOMORROW - Tuesday 8 October 2019. Check it out here: FIVE DAY DEAL
