From its humble beginning 54 years ago, Tibetan Children's Village has today become a thriving, integrated educational community for destitute Tibetan children in exile, as well as for hundreds of those escaping from Tibet every year. It has established branches in India extending from Ladakh in the North to Bylakuppe in South, with over 16,726 children under its care.

The Mission of Tibetan Children's Villages (TCV) - an integrated charitable organisation - is to ensure that all Tibetan children under its care receive a sound education, a firm cultural identity and become self-reliant and contributing members of the Tibetan community and the world at large.

Sponsorship payments are utilized for the upkeep, education and health care of the sponsored child, while earmarked funding or donations are used for the specific project or programs and any general donations are used where the need is most.
