Lha's Projects

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.

Report 2012


The Annual Report, written by Lha’s Director, Ngawang Rabgyal, sets out the aims of the organization, the year’s developments and the latest financial position. It also illustrates the diversity of the social programs provided, and the numbers of students who have benefited from these services. These achievements could not have been reached without the generosity of the volunteers and the dedication of the students and Lha’s employees.

Lha’s primary goal is to provide meaningful social services, such as free education, computer skills courses, vocational training, health and environmental education and service, volunteer coordination, cultural exchanges, free books, medicine and clothing distribution. The services of Lha are open to Tibetan refugees as well as the local Indian population and people from the Himalayan regions.
