Help us to make a difference in Tibet by making generous year-end tax-deductible contribution
As we begin to celebrate another holiday season and New Year, Tibetan Village Project would like to offer you a summary report of 2017 and invite you to contribute to our Year-End-Campaign either by online or by mail. Your year-end gift helps us to get started on our 2018 projects that impact lives of Tibetans we support in Tibet.
Education: We believe education is the investment that Tibet needs most. Through one-on-one sponsorship, TVP’s Scholarship Program supports promising students who are pursuing higher education in colleges and universities in Tibet with a goal of becoming entrepreneurs, doctors, dentists, teachers, lawyers, etc. In 2017, TVP provided scholarships to 72 college students in Tibet. Learn more about our Education Program here.
Social Entrepreneurship: TVP supports Tibetan entrepreneurs to establish and grow their businesses with a goal of providing employment opportunities. In 2017, TVP has completed our 5-year project known as Tibet Social Entrepreneurship Initiative (TSEI) that worked with over 1300 entrepreneurs. A key group of entrepreneurs from our business network has registered a business association in China and it has its own board of directors that will leverage local resources while TVP continues to works with international supporters. A complete TSEI project report will be available to share. Learn more about our Entrepreneurship Program here.
Service Project: TVP mobilized volunteers to implement service projects in local communities, and many of the volunteers traveled to Tibet with Conscious Journeys. In 2017, TVP had about 31 volunteers who organized health education workshops, installed waste bins, and distributed school supplies. Among them, we had a 5-person medical team who successfully designed and implemented a pilot mobile hands-on health education curriculum that focuses on hygiene, sanitation, food safety, and first aid for host families in four villages. As a result of this, TVP will implement a similar health project for women in several villages, and we look forward to welcoming more volunteers to Tibet. Learn more about our Service Program here.
Year-End Gift: 2017 has been a year of progress by focusing on education, service projects, and social entrepreneurship. TVP continues to remain one of the few organizations still active on the Tibetan Plateau. You can help us to support others by making a generous year-end tax-deductible contribution. If you would like to travel to Tibet with TVP or learn more about our projects. We look forward to sharing our complete 2017 Annual Report with you soon.
