From its humble beginning 54 years ago, Tibetan Children’s Village has today become a thriving, integrated educational community for Tibetan children in exile, as well as for hundreds of those escaping from Tibet every year. It has established branches in India extending from Ladakh in the North to Bylakuppe in South, with over 16,726 children under its care.
Today, they are proud to see young people from villages serving the Tibetan community in different capacities and, at the same time, accept that there are a few children who have not fared so well. In this respect, extensive efforts are being made to further improve lives, bearing in mind the lessons and shortcomings experienced in the past. Though much has been achieved, there is still a long way to go to provide the children under their care with the necessary resources and the opportunities to develop their abilities to the fullest. As highlighted by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his message on the 35th Anniversary of this initiative; “the future direction of our programme will be in the field of further education in specialised studies to meet the human resource needs of the community during our period in exile and more importantly when the time comes for us to go back to our homeland…”
