Happiness Home

Constructed in 2007, the Sikkim Happiness Home is a comfortable home and safe refuge for twenty five girls. It is built to withstand the occasional earthquake and has solar panels to provide reliable electricity.


Most of our girls come from remote villages in Sikkim and now attend excellent schools in Gangtok. They learn, dance, and live together as sisters.

College Graduates

We currently have 10 amazing young women in college and 7 graduates. Our graduates include accountants, nurses, and our oldest is helping to manage an organization similar to Taraloka for a Tibetan refugee settlement!

How We Achieve Our Mission

We strive to do the best we can for a small group of girls in the Himalayan region of Sikkim. We rescue girls from difficult circumstances and support all of their needs until they graduate from college. As soon as one of our girls enters college, we have room to bring another girl into the Sikkim Happiness Home, their safe refuge.


Our Mission

The Taraloka Foundation creates opportunities for Himalayan girls by providing education, healthcare, and a safe refuge.

How Can You Help?

Because Taraloka is a small and focused non-profit, every dollar makes a signifigant and measurable difference. We hope you will join us in this mission to offer our girls a better life.
