Recently some of the more senior students have moved to university studies and sponsors are welcome to assist throughout their higher education. Senior students from Ladakh are pursuing their studies in Bangalore and Chandigarh with residence in hostels. Several have recently returned to assist at various Mahabodhi programs. The Mettaloka Youth Center in Mysore houses 51 college students attending various campuses.
Education often spills over to provide an entire impoverished family with an improved standard of living as new possibilities of jobs become available for one of the members. Costs of higher education are rising here, as everywhere, and any assistance for these serious students would be greatly appreciated.
