Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Tibetan Village Project provides scholarships to Tibetan students who attend colleges and universities in Tibet. Based on need and merit, TVP selects students and finds generous individuals who contribute annually through one-on-one sponsorship.

Each sponsor contributes $75 a month, or $900 annually, to support a student's education. This covers 90% of the tuition in most colleges and universities, including Tibet University and Kangding Teachers' college, for one year. Sponsors are welcome to send additional funds toward students' food, medical, and transportation needs. A general scholarship fund is established to receive donations (large and small). Funds are used to assist students without a sponsor, staff coordinators who administer the program, and students' emergency needs.

TVP was founded in 2001 by Tamdin Wangdu to fund a medical clinic in his home village after he lost his father. Several years later, TVP has expanded its program to other villages through health, education, and small business development.

In 2016:
75 students received scholarships
28 boys (37%), 47 girls (63%)
25 graduated in 2016
