Since 2002, Lha has been bringing groups of students from other countries to McLeod Ganj for a Cultural Exchange program. This year 82 students participated from six different academic institutions. Lha's final group of students for the 2011 Cultural Exchange program bid farewell to McLeod Ganj and their friends in the Tibetan community this week as they headed home to New Orleans. The group was made up of 15 students from Tulane University's School of Social Work, who were accompanied by one of their professors as well as the School's Dean.

Lha partnered with the Rotary Club Dharamsala to distribute more than 2,000 pieces of clothing to people living in the slum areas of Lower Dharamsala on November 14, 2011. Each month, clothing donations of between 100-200 items are made from Lha to the Rotary Club. On December 10th, to commemorate the 22nd anniversary H.H. the Dalai Lama's Nobel Peace Prize, Lha distributed another 2,000 pieces of clothing to the Tibetan community. Tibetans lined up outside of Lha's new building, the Ahimsa House to wait for their turn to pick out some items that suited them. Of the donations, the shoes, sweaters and the winter coats were the most sought after, with about 60 winter coats and 100 pairs of shoes and boots being picked out by the individuals. The remaining articles of clothing and shoes will be saved for the next clothing distribution day, which will occur in the new year. The majority of these items are donated by volunteers and visiting tourists, and are collected at the Lha Office on Temple Road. Additionally, Lha frequently receives packages containing clothing and other donations from around the world. So far over 25,000 articles of clothing in total have been donated to both the local Indian community and the Tibetan Refugee community since this project began in 2002.
