The children performed songs and dances from Tibet in their beautiful traditional costumes as part of the school festivities.

The provision of a good education is vital to escape the trap of poverty everywhere in India, but it is of very special importance that these Tibetan children have the opportunity to study the language, religion and customs of their native country in exile, something denied them in their homeland, but essential to a thriving refugee community, benefitting both themselves and also the wider Indian community also.
