Educational commitment
The schools we built or helped with contributions received from friends, are located from 5 to 50 Km from the monastery. They were mainly chosen because they were in very poor conditions (see pictures below) and for the dedication of the teaching body.
After the opening feast-day the relationship with the teachers and the students (and consequently with the people of those areas) is very warm, with the boys and girls urging the teachers to invite us more often to their premises. And when we find some time and go to see them they are really very happy to spend some time wth us.

Besides the construction-effort, we help hundreds of poor students to pay their school-fees and to buy books and stationaries.

Planes for the future? Well, our list of possible new schools is a pretty long one. Were you interested in sharing our commitment for education, do not miss visiting the Donations page. Thank you.
