Lha Charitable Trust is delighted to announce the launch of the annual report 2017. 
The year 2017 has been a very special year for Lha Charitable Trust as we celebrate our 20th anniversary. It has been a year of experimentation, learning and evolving. This year we carried out 34 significant projects. The year threw up many challenges, prompted us to push ourselves to new limits, become innovative and emerge with new insights. It also made us face many situations where we were challenged to change, modify or recreate the modality to work with our beneficiaries. However, what did not change for us is our zeal to create opportunities for our community for better health and education. The path for this work has never been smooth, and we have faltered, learnt and evolved into being more rooted and compassionate. We have also strengthened and streamlined our interventions through regular monitoring, evaluation and timely strategic decision making. In times of crisis and pain, what has helped us stay the course is the faith that has been bestowed on us by our beneficiaries, partners, funders and well-wishers. This year we were fortunate enough to see many such moments, and we would like to give you a glimpse of these through this annual report.

During the month of November, 2016, Lha worked with a survey sociologist* who conducted a program evaluation of our Community Soup Kitchen in Dharamsala. Beneficiaries eating lunch at the Community Kitchen completed a self-administered questionnaire, which provided important information about the program’s impacts and effectiveness. Our survey demonstrated positive impacts to people’s health, finances, diet and education, while documenting the critical importance of Lha’s ongoing efforts to provide nutritious meals to low-income Tibetan refugees. We also found that users are very satisfied with all aspects of the Community Kitchen.

Providing education and various social services to the community is the main objective of Lha Charitable Trust. We would like to announce a vacant position of Computer Instructor at our office in Mcleod Ganj, Dharamshala and invite applications from interested candidates having relevant qualifications.

 I, on behalf of Lha Charitable Trust, would like to convey that one of the greatest joys of this festive season is the opportunity to say heartfelt Thank You! and to wish you and your family avery happy and healthy New Year 2017 ahead.

Lha Charitable Trust is pleased to present our Annual Report for 2016. This year we carried out 36 significant projects and programmes which are expected to have a positive impact on at least 30,770 people. Lha is continuing to expand its learning and enrichment opportunities worldwide. The Trust focuses its efforts on five areas: Social services, Educational resources, Awareness of the Tibet issue, Volunteering opportunities, and Cultural exchange programmes. Since Lha was founded in 1997 we have continued to be inspired by the compassion, dedication and contributions of generous supporters and thousands of volunteers from around the globe. Thanks to you, our generous supporters and volunteers, 2016 has been an amazing and a great success.


Dharamsala is a small village situated in Himachal Pradesh, Northern India. Located here is the seat of the Tibetan Government in Exile, the home of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, and the office of Lha Charitable Trust, a grassroots, non-profit organisation run by Tibetan refugees. In addition to playing a crucial role in the community by providing free education to Tibetan refugees, Lha has a number of projects such as their Clean Water Project. Since 2010, Lha has installed water filtration systems at 24 different sites throughout Northern India. This has contributed positively to the health and wellbeing of Tibetan, Indian and Himalayan communities. The total number of beneficiaries of the Clean Water Project to date is approximately 13,753 people.
