Lha is a non-profit organization dependent on monetary contributions from philanthropic corporations and generous individuals. In India, even a little goes a long way, and a lot goes very far!

Computer Teaching

Computer Professionals:

Lha is always looking for volunteers with skill in Graphic Design or other computer-related specialities.

We offer daily computer classes at Beginning and Intermediate levels. Beginner's courses focus on introducing students to the basics of using computers. Basic curriculum includes typing, using Microsoft Word and Powerpoint, and navigating the Internet. Intermediate Courses teach students to use more sophisticated programs like Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.

Additionally, Lha often works with Graphic Designers to update and renovate our website and keep our fundraising and promotional materials current. We are also very interested in working with video editors and other film professionals to develop informational and promotional materials.

Volunteer Summary:

Lha offers a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the Tibetan community. While we welcome drop-in volunteers with no previous communication or planning, we also offer other options for those wanting to plan ahead and receive supported services before arrival in India, upon arrival and during their stay in Dharamsala.

Pre-arranged volunteers are guaranteed a placement at Lha, and we strongly encourage potential volunteers to submit an application before your arrival in India so that we can be sure to place you in a role best suited to your unique skill-sets. Most volunteers work directly with Lha, while others are placed throughout the community with other NGOs.

We believe our reception and orientation service is to the mutual benefit of both Lha and our volunteers, enabling the smoothest and most efficient transition possible to Dharamsala. Please note that all donations received from these services go directly into the social service programs provided by Lha.

If you are trained in any specific skills, we will try to provide opportunities for you to use your expertise to benefit others in our community.  If you are planning to just drop in, our office is located on Temple Road in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala (just across from State Bank of India). Our office is open from 9AM-5PM, Monday to Saturday. Please note that the Lha office is closed on the second Saturday of every month.

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 and beneficiaries 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.
