The Tibet Fund NY
Founded in 1981, The Tibet Fund is dedicated to helping Tibetans improve their lives and preserve their distinct cultural, religious and national identity. The Tibet Fund brings urgently needed resources to the educational, cultural, health and socio-economic institutions that sustain the Tibetan way of life, language, and traditions. The Tibet Fund's support helps to sustain the Tibetan refugee settlements in India, Nepal and Bhutan and provide rehabilitation services for the thousands of new refugees who continue to arrive from Tibet every year. Through its Program in Tibet, the Tibet Fund partners with local NGOs in Tibet for projects that treat and prevent blindness, house and care for orphans, and provide educational opportunities for Tibetans.
