DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

The Department of Education (DoE) is the highest central administrative authority responsible for the educational affairs of Tibetans in exile.  Situated in Dharamsala, India, the DoE provides support for the educational and welfare needs of thousands of Tibetan refugee students in various Tibetan schools in India, Nepal and Bhutan.  Comprised of residential and day schools, they range from pre-primary to senior secondary level.   With the help of various foreign donors and sponsors, the DoE is currently supporting approximately 2650 students.  We are thankful to all the sponsors, donors and the Tibet Fund, New York for their assistance over many years.  As a result of this support, thousands of children have been able to attend school and many have completed their education successfully.  At present, we are receiving sponsorship for about 200 students through the Tibet Fund but more sponsors are needed as the number of impoverished children and new arrivals swell the ranks of the exile schools.
