The annual dues are 60 CHF for a single membership or 90 CHF for a dual membership
In addition to the membership fee, the annual contribution for the sponsorship of a child is 400 CHF or 200 CHF over the entire period of his/her schooling (10 to 12 years), depending on whether you choose a full or partial sponsorship.
The full sponsorship (400 CHF / year) covers the full cost of a student’s tuition
By choosing a partial sponsorship (200 CHF / year) you cover half of a student’s school fees and the rest is paid by AaZ-CH
You are free to choose the option, depending on your resources. Whichever option is chosen, the sponsor commits to pay this amount for the duration of the child’s schooling (see below)
The sponsorship amount is paid in full, after checking your sponsored child’s attendance at school, to an LMHS account at the State Bank of India in Leh (Ladakh). This money is used to operate the school, among other things to:
teachers’ and staff salaries
the purchase of supplies
school supplies and books
the annual picnic for juniors and seniors
travel expenses for school staff
cultural and sports activities
Sponsorship is a commitment
Your decision to support your sponsored child throughout his or her schooling in Zanskar (10 to 12 years) is of paramount importance to him or her.
The respect of the moral commitment that you make in accepting such a sponsorship is vital. To reconsider it would put our association in a difficult position with regard to the child, his family and, of course, the school.
In the event that you experience temporary or permanent personal difficulties that make it impossible for you to fulfil this commitment, we ask you to inform us promptly so that we can take the necessary measures.
If this commitment feels too significant, you can also support the activities of our association with the LMHS by subscribing a school support.
