Educational Support

Dechen's music reached a very large audience in Germany, Switzerland and Austria due the 60 minutes film documentary produced by the Swiss National Television that featured Dechen, her music and her family history including a trip to Tibet with the Swiss camera team. This popularity helped her to get the attention of GOFUS Suisse Cup Davos, a big charity organisation that chooses interesting social projects every year. In that particular year she was invited along with Mr. Röbi Federer, father of the Swiss Tennis Icon Roger Federer. The organization had decided that their donation should support Roger Federer's Foundation to help Children in need, but also to Dechen's social project in Tibet for Educational Support for young students.

In addition to the generous donation by GOFUS Suisse Cup Davos, Dechen was very grateful and happy when one of the main sponsors, McDonald increased the donation to CHF 20'000. The check given to Dechen on that same evening came into effective use to sponsor 10 young Tibetan students from very poor families to go to college.
