Welcome to the Joru Foundation! Our mission is to support education initiatives inside Tibet. Our work focuses primarily on an exceptional school called Sengdruk Taktse, located on the high altitude Tibetan Plateau in a region known as Golok (Qinghai Province).
The name “Joru” is based on the beloved Tibetan epic saga of King Gesar. When Gesar was a child, before he ascended to the throne, he was known as Joru. Through all adversity and obstacle, Joru persevered, never giving up, until he finally became King. The story of Joru is the story of reaching one’s full potential.
On September 9, 2019 (9/9/19), Sengdruk Tatkse School celebrated its 20th anniversary. It was a joyous and celebratory occasion. More photos to come as we rebuild our website!
