Just a few weeks after a Tibetan girl bagged the prestigious gold medal, Sonam Dolma, another Tibetan girl achieved the same feat by winning the gold medal in one of India’s top colleges for her outstanding academic performance.
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.
