The main goal of ES-Tibet is to educate Tibetan refugees in India, in order to improve their work perspectives once they are back in Tibet. We prepare the students to sit the Cambridge English exams and also provide them with computer skills.
All of our students risked their lives on their way over the Himalayas from Tibet to India. They have a strong wish to study, are highly motivated and are very hard-working. Besides providing them with education, one of our main goals is to improve their self-confidence. Therefore, we find it very important that the atmosphere at the school between teacher and student is one of esteem, respect and goodwill.
The students live and study in the school. ES-Tibet provides them with food, medical cover, accommodation and even some pocket money every month, as well as meeting travel costs at the end of the course, so that they do not need to worry about such things while studying at the school.
