Sherig - Tibetan Children's Educational and Welfare Fund


The Department of Education, Central Tibetan Administration of His Holiness the Dalai Lama (commonly known as the Tibetan Government-in-Exile) oversees the welfare and educational needs of all Tibetan children in India, Nepal and Bhutan. Through joint efforts with the Indian government and with autonomous organizations within the community, today all Tibetan refugee children attend school receiving a modern education in addition to learning their language, history, and literature and about their culture. The schools have played a crucial role in our community's success in being able to maintain our identity in exile during the last four decades
