Nepal is home to approximately 10,000 Tibetans who are scattered among 10 settlements across the country.
Life in Nepal is hard for Tibetans as most of them have no legal status as refugees. This means they have no rights, they cannot work for any Nepali organisation, and they are not entitled to any kind of welfare. For the majority of Tibetans in Nepal, this means making a meagre living illegally by weaving carpets, spinning wool or selling small handicrafts and jewellery.
Our work in Nepal focuses on providing support for elders, emergency relief and education – empowering young Tibetans to take control of their own futures.
