Mission of the institution

One of the first major undertakings of society was the creation of an educational hostel. The foundation stone of this hostel was laid by HH The Dalai Lama on November 21, 1997 and also named it Kyitsel-ling.

The settlement leadership under Ven. D G Khochhen Rinpoche is wise and supportive of all efforts to genuinely help with the children’s education. This was a major reason for the establishment of Kyitsel-ling at Clement Town.
