About Thang Foundation
Thang Foundation is a non-profit organization which aims to develop creative and educational projects for children in Nepal. The projects focus on children’s books and reading pleasure.
The name Thang comes from the Nepalese word Thangka, which means work of art. A Thangka is a painted or embroidered Tibetan Buddhist banner that was originally hung in a monastery or above a family altar. During the ceremonial processions, it was carried by monks. The Tibetan word ‘thang’ means flat and indicates that a thangka is a painting on a flat surface, which, however, can be rolled up when it is not displayed.
