Where we help
See where we help in the Indian Himalayas.
Tibetan exile villages in Ladakh in the area called Tibetan Settlement Sonamling have been involved in the Adoption project since 2008. Thanks to donors, the poorest seniors and poor families deep in the mountains are supported.
The Tibetan Elderly Home in Chauntra near Dharamsala is one of the homes we have been working with for many years. They fall under the Social Affairs Department of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile.
A home for the elderly Tibetans in South India in the Bylakuppe area is under the administration of the government-in-exile. The home has the capacity to care for 40 seniors.
Namgyal Convent School is part of the important JS Dalai Lama Monastery in Dharamsala. The monastery was founded and inaugurated in 2017 very close to the residence of JS Dalai Lama. We have been supporting him since 2016.
TCV is the largest network of exile villages for Tibetan children across India. In addition to modern teaching, they also provide accommodation and preserve the cultural identity of Tibetan children.
The monumental Ki Monastery is located at an altitude of 4,166 m above the Spiti River in the Himachal Pradesh region. It is the most breathtaking gem in the Spiti Valley due to its arrangement on a rocky hill. We have been supporting it since 2008.
The Komik Monastery is one of the oldest monasteries founded in the Spiti Valley and is located at an altitude of 4,587 m above sea level. We have been supporting the local monastery school in the lower capital of Kaza since 2008.
In the heart of the Himalayas in the Spiti Valley at an altitude of 3,600 m above sea level opposite the capital Kaza, we have been supporting the education of a group of 30 Buddhist nuns from the Sakya lineage since 2006.
Diskit Monastery forms a dominant feature of the northern vast Nubra Valley in Ladakh, India. The monastery is situated on a rock and below it is a 32 meter tall statue of Maitreya Buddha. We support the local monastery school.
THF has been providing asylum to Tibetan refugees, children and the elderly for over 60 years and acts as an important nest and root of contemporary Tibetan culture in Indian exile.
The weak institutional and financial background of Buddhist nuns resulted in the "Daughters of the Buddha" project in 2016. Project support is dedicated to the remote Himalayan valley of Pin.
The inconspicuous Rangri Monastery near the town of Manali is a real oasis and a transition between tropical India and the Himalayas. Monks come here from the Komik Monastery in Spiti and study very diligently.
