The tragedy of Tibet is already forgotten. It began in 1949, when the newly-formed Chinese Republic invaded the ‘Roof of the World’, proclaiming the “liberation” of the Tibetan people. What has happened from then onwards has been a tragedy in every sense, resulting in the deaths of over two million Tibetans, from a total population of seven million.
Tibetan women suffer dreadful controls on childbirth, involving sterilization and abortions carried out within the final months of pregnancy. The Tibetan language, history and culture are denied, and the influx of ever-larger numbers of Chinese colonies into Tibet has already rendered the Tibetan people a minority in their own land.
For these reasons many Tibetans choose to risk the dangers of exile rather than live as slaves at home. It is to the Tibetan children who live in exile that we want to offer the opportunity of survival and education in a school where they can keep alive a tradition and culture which are in danger of extinction. Orphan children walk for three weeks from Mount Kailash in Tibet to find refuge in the schools in Kathmandu.
