Tibet Relief Fund UK charity number: 1061834
Tibet Relief Fund works to empower Tibetans to build sustainable communities and better futures through education and innovative practical grassroots initiatives.
There are currently around 150,000 Tibetans living in exile, since the first wave of refugees fled their homes in 1959 to escape China’s occupation. Tibetan’s still living inside Tibet are marginalised and denied fundamental rights, with their religious beliefs, cultural identity and ways of life under serious threat. Tibetan refugees living in settlements in India and Nepal have limited access to healthcare, education or work opportunities. This makes it difficult for them to build sustainable livelihoods and develop their communities, and leaves them vulnerable to crises.
