Über uns

Educational Support Tibet (E.S. Tibet) is a non-profit organisation, founded in 2001 and registered in Switzerland, which has established and funds the Kunpan Cultural School in Dharamsala, northern India. This school offers Tibetan adult refugees 2 years of further education in English, Chinese and Computing. All students have the opportunity to attain Cambridge University English Certificates.

The Aims of Educational Support Tibet (E.S.Tibet)
• To financially support the running of the Kunpan Cultural School for Tibetan refugees in Northern India.
• To recruit teaching volunteers from all around the world.
• To organise and manage the school´s curriculum, student intake and day to day living conditions and welfare of the students.
• To encourage and promote self-confidence in the students so that they take responsibility for their own learning and actively participate in the running of the school.
• To raise enough money to build our own bigger school and thus offer the opportunity of education to more and more Tibetan refugees in the future.
• To promote the independence of Tibetans through education, and to make an important contribution to the preservation of the traditional Tibetan culture.
