Education of the Tibetan refugee children was the immediate priorities of His Holiness the Dalai Lama once he came in exile. He felt strongly that only a successful education system would maintain Tibetan identity and culture.
More than 60 percent of refugees are children and youth who flee Tibet in search of a better education and economic opportunity. Most arrive with very limited academic skills or formal training in Tibetan language and culture. Due to the steady influx of new refugees, Tibetan exile schools are overcrowded and their resources stretched to the limit.
Through the European Commission and other NGO's assistance grant, The Tibet House Trust has helped establish a special school for new arrivals and Sponsorship Program, support basic education, vocational training, school text book, food, clothing and medical care at schools for newly arrived refugee children and scores of other schools throughout the exile community.
Please help by selecting one of the payment options on the right for donation in support of this program.
In most cases, one hundred percent (100%) of the funds you send to The Tibet House Trust for support goes directly to the earmarked program. To help us continue this work, make a General Donation at whatever level you wish. Thank You!
