  • Sponsor the Education of a Tibetan Child
    One of the most crucial responsibilities of Tibetans in India is to educate the children who are the future seeds of Tibet. To ensure the education of the next generation, a sponsorship program has been established for Tibetan refugees, mainly in South India. This program is under the administration of the Council for Tibetan Education, Dharamasala, India.
    Sponsorship for a Tibetan child to attend boarding school is $10 per month. Sponsors send an annual sum of $120 and an additional $1 per month (optional) to help defray the administrative expenses of the program here in the U.S.A. The U.S. representative forwards all funds to the Council for Tibetan Education to make the international money transfer efficient. Please join the TRA Program and make a difference in the lives of Tibetan children.
