Lha's primary goal is to provide meaningful, multi-leveled social services, to help ease the transition for the Tibetan refugee community. Lha's services are open to Tibetan refugees, as well as the local Indian population, and people from the Himalayan regions.
The donations from volunteers and exchange groups staying in Lha's accommodations have allowed Lha to become more self-sufficient and sustainable. Our Language classes, Computer classes, and other daily social services are now able to continue to be provided regardless of outside funding. However, to keep up with the growing needs of the community, and to maintain the operation of our other social services and special projects such as the soup kitchen, Contact magazine, clean water, environmental initiatives, HIV/AIDs awareness, eye, dental and health care, we continue to rely on your generous donations.
Since Lha's founding 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.
