Silent Auction

Thanks to the generosity of our Canadian sponsors, Tara Bodong is privileged to offer the following Vancouver-Tofino package in an online SILENT AUCTION that will be ongoing until end of June, 2019. All of the money raised will go towards the care of the 19 girls who we support at our home for girls in Lumla, Arunachal Pradesh, NE India. Getting an education means that our girls will have the opportunities that will not only enrich their own lives but also those of the whole community. This is your chance to visit Tofino or if you can’t, still pass this on to friends, colleagues and family. Every dollar, pound, euro helps the dreams of a little girl in Lumla come true!
