The Golog Support Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2007. The foundation is an initiative where we want to build a bridge between our small country that rests below sea level and connects to the rooftop of the world: Tibet. The locals, mostly nomads, have little or no access to health care and / or education and with this foundation we try to support them.
The population indicates their needs and where opportunities lie; we help them to realize this. The motivating idea behind this is that the population receiving the assistance will, with their own strength, eventually continue their development. At the onset of the foundation we made the choice to acquire the ChildFund House, which was bought by a private initiative in 2006, and bring that under the auspices of the Golog Support Foundation. The property of this is part of our team in Golog.
In addition to medical care, in the rapidly changing Tibet, it is also important that children have access to education so that they have a future and achieve their dreams. Many children are born into a nomadic family and therefore have no fixed abode and school nearby. Our response to this is the Child Fund project. With the ChildFund we offer children a safe haven for our children with a host family, so that they have access to education at a local school. We provide the children with board and lodging, clothing, medical care and pay for their education.
What is unique to our organization is that our support is demand-driven. We do not think of what could be beneficial for the region, but our local team indicates where possibilities, chances or emergencies arise. From the Golog Support Foundation, we respond by linking people from the west to the initiatives in Golog by offering “primarily” financial support. We find it important that people do not just donate money, but our donors invest through their contributions into a local initiatives and projects that can bring benefit for future generations. Our ultimate goal is also to give the local people the ability on their own to organize, maintain and develop various projects.
Cooperation between the Golog Support Foundation and the locals are transparent and small to mention. We have direct contact with locals who are trusted relationships that exist through our initiator Jigmé Lama Namgyal. In addition, our organization works only with volunteers. Everyone that is involved does so through their own personal motivation linked to a heart connection and a piece of spiritual connection. It offers volunteers the opportunity to look beyond borders and frames of our own Western perspectives. They experience how the people on the rooftop of the world work together with love, compassion and equality.

In turn each project has their own governance and accountability policies but share a joint goal. During the creation of the Golog Support Foundation we divided our endeavors into three work areas:
* Golog Education
* Golog Healthcare
* Golog Child Fund
We believe that by making use of our individual qualities we can blur the boundaries between us. We bring the positive aspects of Tibetan and Western culture together, thus creating opportunities for the nomadic population in Golog. Besides contributing to the current living conditions of our fellow man, we are also aimed at future generations.
We strive to make others acquainted with Tibetan culture and human values and wisdom hidden therein.
