The Yongling Creche & Kindergarten was founded in Dharamsala , India in 1984 by a Tibetan youth, Mr. Dawa Tsering, and with the cooperation of parents in Mcleod Ganj. During those days, many Tibetans were engaged as laborers in construction, road building and carpet weaving.  They faced many problems having to bring their children to work.  Thus the kindergarten was established to shoulder the responsibility of the Exile Tibetan Government so that working parents would gain an awareness of their responsibility toward their children’s education and could educate their children at the right age. Approximately 260 children, including 50 babies below three years of age attend the school.  There are 17 staff including nine teachers, three nannies, two cooks, one dance and music teacher, one hostel mother and a secretary.  The school also has hostel facilities for those children whose parents have to move constantly in search of livelihood or are living in places where there are no Tibetan schools.

Please note that from September 2015 onward, The Tibet Fund will charge a $5 fee for each quarterly sponsorship payment to partially cover the cost associated with credit card fees, wire transfers to India, and other processing fees.
