Ngayur Sangacholing School
The Ngayur Sangacholing School in Payung village is only 45 minutes walk from the busy town of Kalimpong near to Darjeeling,an important bazaar town for traders from Sikkim, Bhutan, Tibet and the plains of Benga. In 2006, they requested funding to build an additional classroom in their expanding School whci is run by local monks and owned by the Ringpoche Ngawang Hochok. The school is ambitious and hopes eventually to have up to 32 classrooms to cater for the growing number of pupils wishing to attend. The Juniper Trust donated £1000 for the construction of one classroom.
In April 2007, Students from King Edward VI Five Ways School visited the school construction project and the students got out paintbrushes to add finishing touches to the newly built classrooms and help clear the ground for the foundations of the main school building. The British students had quite an experience meeting and working along side the local children of Kalimpong.
