The school provides accommodation and education to girls from impoverished families living in the remote highlands of Upper Mustang on the border with Tibet and of nearby Buddhist Himalayan regions.

The educational system of Upper Mustang Nepal has as its foundation the Buddhist doctrine and, with rare exceptions, there are no other schools outside of the monasteries and religious communities.
