CED Society is non-profit organization that provides a positive family environment and modern education for girls with orphans, disable, blind, and underprivileged children of the Himalayan border region. CED is expending it's mission to focus on girls.
" Thank you to everyone who has supported us over these last 15 years, and to all of you who have helped shape the vision of what we will become. None of this is possible without your blessings and support. Here's to the Future".
This Thank You note is from 5 Girls from CED Orphange. For the first time in History from the High elevation of the Himalyan Mountains Dolpo region have graduated from High school. Their names are Passang Choedon, Pema Lhamo, Sonam Bhutti, Passang Lhamo and Pema Dolma. Their all attending College or the University in India. Just 15 years ago when the 5 girls plus 2 younger girls along with 4 boys were rescued, they only spoke their Regions language. Today, they now speak, read and write 4 languages. One of them being English.Today the Orphange now houses as many as 23 children.
The girls continue on with, " You all have the power to help turn myths into reality. A son is an asset and a daughter is a liability. Because of the Age Old myth of where we come from. Only sons will be of help in old age, daughter means, hugh dowry. Daughter is a "Paraya Dhan". Only a son can perform the last rites for parents. Only a son can carry forward a family name. Any disability is called, "Bad Omen". Today we have the power to change our "Old Myths".This is our truth...Girl's have the right to, be themselves and overcome gender sterotypes. Express themslves with originality and enthusiasm. Take risks, fulfill goals, and take pride in our successes. Accept and appreciate our bodies. Have confidence in ourselves and feel safe in the World. We prepare for meaningful work and economic independence". Thank you.

And where the girls and children will have music therapy, music appreciation and applied music lessons available to them. I am seeking your financial support to build 2 more homes and schools for girls with disabilities and blindness. This year's Fund Razer begins today. Please help, this is my cause, they are my Family.
