After having obtained the necessary approval from the State Authorities and forming a construction team, work started in August 2001. The school which has a capacity for 500 children is located in the vicinity of some of the best schools in India thereby have some apparent advantages. As originally planned admission to this school is based selectively on merit and open to Tibetan students from different schools in exile. Mr. Duke Tsering, a former student of TCV, Dharamsala who was a senior teacher was appointed as its first Headmaster.
In early 2004, recruitment of necessary teachers and administrative co-workers was completed. After selection criteria and process of conducting special entrance tests were worked out, 198 students from class V-VII within TCV schools joined their new school on 1st July 2004. Beginning from class VI it has up to class VIII at present and the school will gradually be upgraded to Senior Secondary level. Without the trust and continued support of our friends we would not have achieved this ambitious project of giving some of the academically gifted children this special opportunity.
The mission of the Tibetan Childrens Village (TCV) an integrated charitable organization is to ensure that all Tibetan Children under its care receive a sound education, a firm culture identity and become self reliant and contributing members of the Tibetan Community and the world at large.
