Question about volunteering at a Tibetan Refugee School in India:

Dear Wade,

My name is Ke Wu and I'm currently a student at Arizona State
University in the United States. I am in the midst of conducting a
research project that focuses on teaching economically and socially
disabled children, with special attention to the different approaches
used to teach these children who are not a part of the traditional
education system.

I learned about your travels from an article in Abroad View, where I
also found your website and contact information. I'm interested in

children who have faced a difficult past when trying to get an

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated and I look
forward to hearing from you!

 off hand, but I can get it to you in a couple of days. The education that
 the SOS school offers is really impressive, good choice for your research

 Will be in touch,
