Tibet World was established in February 2013. While started in one small room, it has grown into a five story building located on Jogiwara Road in McLeod Ganj. The NGO has been growing up very successfully and quickly with all of your contributions, compassion in action and loving kindness, as well as the efforts of our many generous supporters. Today, Tibet World is very proud and happy to release our 2014 annual report.

2015 Plans: 2014 has been a busy ear for us at Tibet World. We’ve accomplished much in a very short period of time and have big plans for next year’s programming.Tibet World will improve our education and cultural program and set up proper teaching materials for better education. In order to accomplish our goals we are adding new programs including:
- Compassion center is a new program for Tibet World that will house all Tibetan cultural programs under one roof. This center will be under the umbrella of Tibet World to promote nonviolence, conflict resolution and Buddhist philosophy to encourage future Tibetan role models.
- Walking tours will be a Tibetan cultural tour to promote awareness for anyone who visits Dharamsala. All visitors will have the opportunity to deeply engage with Tibetan NGOs, CTA, and other Tibetan cultural aspects.
- Tibetan learning intensives will be offered for tourists and volunteers who would like to learn and teach the Tibetan language.
Letter from the Director
Tibet World is not MY project. It is a project that has been growing with all of your effort, love and compassionate help. I am very grateful and happy that with your support, Tibet World has grown to the organization it is today.
We’ve accomplished so much in the last year! With financial support and the assistance of volunteers from around the world, Tibet World has been able to offer diversified programming to benefit Tibetan Refugees, the local Indian population, and people of the Himalayan region. Our programs allow us to holistically impact Tibetan culture, education and environment. One of our biggest achievements this year has been our move into a much larger building.
As with any new project and just as things grow in nature, Tibet World needs a lot of love, time, and passion. With the thanks of many volunteer supporters from around the world, we’ve been able to successfully begin and implement a variety of programs to benefit Tibetan refugees. You have helped us so much by offering your time, service, and spreading the word about our work here at Tibet World. So I take this chance to approach you to ask for your help in terms of what the project needs in this very moment; financial support. Financial donations in the form of sponsorship, along with your loving kindness is as important as the material support. Your donations will go directly towards supporting Tibetan World programs. With your donation, you will get to see the effects your support provides immediately in our programming. Through your financial support, Tibet World will continue to help current students, who will be happy and grateful for your sponsorship!
From all of us at Tibet World, I wish you a happy holiday season and a safe and prosperous new year!
