Give a whole classroom of Tibetan schoolchildren back their heritage, and a chance to learn in their native Tibetan language!

The Chinese public school system in the autonomous region of Tibet is struggling to serve its students well. Classrooms, school supplies and well-trained teachers are scarce, and educational materials written in the students' native Tibetan language are nonexistent. Classes and materials are provided in Mandarin Chinese and do not include any hint of the students' own cultural heritage. Now you can help protect, preserve, and pass along this gorgeous, rich cultural heritage to the children of Tibet!

Tibetan Healing Fund (THF) is working with local education bureaus, school principals and teachers to create Tibetan language texts for primary and middle schools. These children's books, written in Tibetan, are not only based on Tibetan folklore, but also provide regional geography, local customs, culture and art, biographies of well-known scholars, life skills, and significant historical events and places.

The Tibetan Heritage Primers represent the first time anything of this nature has been complied for the Tibetan community and its children. Tibetan Heritage Primer Textbooks will be distributed and available to 196 Tibetan primary schools and approximately 27,000 children in three different counties: Tunde, Trika, and Repkong, in Qinghai Province.

You can help! This Gift That Gives More™ provides Tibetan heritage primers for an entire classroom of Tibetan students in a village school.


Tibetan Healing Fund (THF) is a nonprofit organization working to improve healthcare and education for Tibetans. Originally an informal effort of Tibetan Buddhist monk and medical doctor Dr. Kunchok Gyaltsen, the fund was formalized as a nonprofit in 2001. THF's current programs include midwife training, health education and outreach, and Tibetan-language educational materials. The majority of Tibetan Healing Fund's programs are designed, implemented and managed by Tibetans themselves, using transparent and participatory methods while incorporating local and traditional knowledge.
