关于Associazione Sidare O.n.l.u.s.Sidare协会赞助的大部分的儿童来自西藏、尼泊尔和锡金，或者是来自附近部落地区的贫困家庭。 这些儿童们需要得到教育和良好的待遇。 现在，这些儿童们被安排在该协会所建的学校（于2015年竣工）学习。这也多亏来自地区和Cariverona基金会的贡献以及其他捐款。 大约有八十来名儿童和青少年，还有那些向他们传授教育的僧侣们在学校内生活。
I cembali del Makalu
The only Olympic torch in the world autographed by the Dalai Lama and brought on a peak of eight thousand metres. All the history is told by the reporter Claudio Tessarolo in the book “I cembali del Makalu”, with a photo shoot and a documentary film of rare beauty, that evokes the journey of the torch of the winter games of Turin 2006, brought on top of the Makalu. Before Tom Perry, the barefoot climber, took it to the long trek towards the Himalayan valleys, the torch was blessed and autographed by the Dalai Lama, who wrote a simple but effective dedication on it: “I pray that all sentient men will live in happiness”.
The torch arrived on top of Makalu, at 8,463 m, with the torch-bearer Mario Vielmo.
Now the torch of Turin-Makalu 2006 is auctioned and part of the proceeds will be used to finance projects for the Tibetan orphan children.
All the shipping costs will be borne by the seller.
