How to Help Us

Make a donation

We promise/ensure you to use your donation wisely towards the greatest need. You may also designate your gift to a specific fund such as building and education and old aged and more.

Sponsor a Child

Sponsoring a child is one of the most worthwhile things that can be done for Spiti children of deprived families who make their living on subsistence farming and survive on a pittance. Sapan foundation has set up a child-sponsoring scheme whereby the sponsor donates an annual sum of Euro 250 per year, via direct debit, to pay for school fees, books and transport.

We ask for a commitment from the sponsor throughout the child's education.

Sponsor a Nun or a Monk

For less than $1 per day, you can provide the basic necessities to a nun. One hundred percent of sponsorship funds go directly to India to support the Nuns and Monks.

Local Spiti women make products for selling through our website as part of their income generating program. Their hand made unique gifts such as socks, hats and gloves and carpet cushion for chair, scarves, are all made by wool. Also for sale: prayer flags, shopping bags, cell phone holders, and more. If you are purchasing gifts for friends and family throughout the year, please consider a gift made with love by the women and girls and also Thangka from Spiti artists and Tibetan artists.

Just as the bee in a flower arming neither hue nor scent gather nectar, flies away, So in towns a wise one fares.

If it is necessary to give even one’s body while aspiring to enlightenment, what need is there to mention external objects? Therefore, practicing generosity without hope of reciprocation or (positive) karmic results is the bodhisattvas practice.
