Since July 2012, and this is really a big event for the GCBS,but especially for the Mustang region, the twelve first students of the GCBS who have completed the 10 years education cycle have started the “10+2” (higher studies preparing to university or qualifying studies). Since that moment, the group has been reduced to eleven students who will soon be joined by the new 2013 group, which will bring their number to 19.
Among the first eleven students, there are several disciplines, among which a future nurse and a future teacher. All of them would be a real great benefit for the Mustang region. Higher studies are only possible in larger citiues like Pokhara and they require a specific studying infrastructure and environment for the young students. A house has been identified and chosen for that purpose by Lama Ngawang. It is located near the Pokhara campuses. Of course this has a cost... On a european scale, the rent would be a very affordable one, but on a local scale, it is quite an amount of money.
