Educate The Children
TCEF is committed to helping Tibetan children’s education in exile. Towards these aims, we help to establish education centers for Tibetan children, run a sponsorship program and implement special projects that can make a difference for the education of Tibetans in exile.
We helped to found Kyitsel-ling Tibetan Children’s Education Center at Clement Town, Northern India, that has been successfully helping Tibetan children for the last 16 years. Recently, in collaboration with the Tibetan Refugee Aid Society (TRAS), Canada, we helped to add a third floor to the Sukhavati Educational Hostel in Pademchen, Sikkim.
TCEF’s sponsorship program connects a needy Tibetan child with an interested sponsor here. This has been our most successful education program and we’ve helped hundreds of Tibetan children through this program.
We also work to provide key teaching learning tools like computers. In the years ahead, we’d like to collaborate with Tibetan authorities in exile to help with key projects that Tibetan themselves have identified as being vital and necessary.
