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.
