    Pay it forward leads to happiness for 26 blind Tibetan children

    26-year-old blind Tibetan Kyila spent the first 12 years of her life just waiting to be washed, fed and dressed, she says. Then she went to a school set up by blind German woman, Sabriye Tenberken:

    At Tenberken's school for blind children on the Tibetan plateau, Kyila learned to read and write in Braille, Tibetan, Chinese and English. She also learned computer and therapeutical massage skills and was given the opportunity to study in the United States, Britain, Canada and Germany.
    It inspired Kyila to set up her own non-profit school for blind children of poor farmers in Xigaze, Tibet called 'Kiki's (Happiness) Kindergarten'. Staring with just eight pupils, the school now has 26 where they learn to read braille, sing, paint with scented crayons, dance and play musical instruments. Now Kiki's is set to move to an improved facility in Lhasa, where the children, who are boarders, will have better access to medical care.
