AN UNDER TAKING OF TIBETAN CHILDREN’S VILLAGE


DLIHE

I consider children to be the seeds of our future and it is inspiring to note that most of our establishments in exile are today manned by young educated Tibetans. I would like to stress that we are now at a stage to make long-term plans of selfreliance in various specialized fields during our period of exile and more importantly, when we are able to return to Tibet with freedom. We need to make a concerted effort in this direction. His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s message to TCV in 1996

Though much has been achieved, we still have a long way to go in fulfilling our aims and objectives of providing the children under our care with the necessary resources and opportunities to develop their abilities to the fullest. As has been highlighted by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his message on our 48th Founding Anniversary, the future direction of our program will be in the field of further education in specialized studies to meet the human resource needs of the community in exile and more importantly when the time comes for us to go back to our homeland. We shall endeavor further to improve the quality of our children’s education and their cultural and social upbringing without necessarily sacrificing the simplicity of our exile lifestyle.
