Make a Donation


Your donations will be put to very good use. Partners for Tibetan  Education uses donation funds to provide the help that Tibetan refugee  children need. Every winter, PTE partners with volunteers and interested  organizations in India to host Tibetan refugee children whose parents  are still inside Tibet. These children have nowhere to go during the  long winter break. We support them by offering  a one to two month winter educational program;  pay for their tuition; travel expenses to the training venue; and all  meals and lodging while they are in the program. We have also covered   medical expenses for those in the most need.

PTE offers honorarium to teachers and volunteers who  are also from Tibetan refugee communities. For those teachers and  volunteers who are not local, we also provide transportation, meals and  lodging. Unfortunately, without donations from our generous sponsors,  children, teachers and volunteers living in remote areas would be unable  to reach  us and would not benefit from our programs.

As a fairly new organization staffed solely by volunteers, we are  funded at this point only through personal resources.  All costs are  being kept to a minimum, so that children with limited means can attend  our programs. However, we cannot do this alone. Together, we can empower  Tibetan  children -- educating them in their rich heritage and ancient  traditions. These efforts will enable children to enjoy the depths of  Tibetan culture far into the future.

PTE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in the United  States. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
