About Us

Mission: The mission of Siddhartha School Partnership is to provide operating funds and capital improvement monies to the Siddhartha School, which provides the children of Ladakh, India, access to a rich, thoroughly modern education that is in harmony with their Himalayan heritage and their cultural traditions. Our organization ensures that the school is open to all families, regardless of their economic circumstances.

Results: Founded in 1995 by the esteemed Buddhist Abbot Khen Rinpoche Lobzan Tsetan, the school is a vital agent in moving a simple Buddhist culture into the 21st century with care and consideration for the ancient traditions of its people. Located in the high Himalayas of northern India, Ladakh is among the last places on earth where a traditional Buddhist culture remains unrepressed. However, rapid modernization and the global market economy threaten Ladakh’s sustainable, communal and deeply peaceful way of life. For over 25 years, Siddhartha School has provided a dynamic, sensitive program of academic excellence for all children, Nursery age through Class 10, regardless of economic means.
