Our tibetan refugee project is setup to help the tibetan refugees on exile from their home country. Ever since India gave HH Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government refuge in Dharamsala it has been heart of the tibetan migration. Following the footsteps of the Dalai Lama more than 150000 refugee have fled to India in search for a new and a better life. The Refugees still continue to arrive from Tibet arrive in Dharamsala are currently arrive at the rate of about 8000 per year. Most of the refugee’s come in search for a better life and to be able to live in freedom. Tibetan refugees have had very little exposure to the modern world and thus they face problems in adapting to the new modern life in India.
Our program is aimed at helping and empowering the local refugee Tibetan community which are on exile from their home country and are on search for a better life in India. Under the Tibetan refugee project volunteers Volunteer work to teach English, maths, science, Computer , Social skills, Vocational training to Monks, Nuns and adults who have migrated from Tibetan and are trying to settle in India but find it tough as they are not exposed to this modern life. Volunteers also help with conversation classes. Its a challenging project but at the same time a great learning experience as you get a chance to experience the Tibetan culture, understand their problems and help them with their cause.
One of the most important things that our volunteers get taught while teaching is Love and compassion. We use english as a medium but the end aim of our project is to reach out to the community and give them “HOPE”. Volunteers generally work for 4 – 5 hours a day taking group as well as Private classes. Private conversation classes are specially organized as that way volunteers get to spend a lot of time with one student for the period of the volunteer program and get to know the student better and thus offer personalized guidance. Apart from working to teach english to the refugee volunteers also help with local area cleanup which are organized frequently to bring about awareness.
