TibetXChange Programme

by professor-heaven-crawley in Swansea

We did it
On 19th February 2014 we successfully raised £1,122 with 37 supporters in 28 days

TibetXChange provides a unique opportunity for young Tibetans living in Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim in the Indian Himalayas and Ravangla, a Tibetan refugee settlement in South Sikkim, to spend time at Swansea University leading lectures and discussions on the cultural, political and economic marginalisation of Tibet, the growing trend of self-immolation among Tibetans desperate to draw attention to their situation and the importance of continuing peaceful dialogue with the Chinese authorities regarding the future of Tibet. The exchange will give young Tibetans an opportunity to develop their confidence, skills and capacity to become community leaders
