About us

Help Tibet was founded by Morna White in 1988 in response to the needs of the old people in the exiled Tibetan community in India and Nepal. Our main priority remains the care of old people. However,  while we provide for the basic needs of the most vulnerable in the Tibetan refugess community in India and Nepal , we have developed our work in accordance with three key themes:

Our projects address the needs of the whole community. We have been active in the care of old people, kindergarten education, as well as provision of clean water and sanitation. Read more about our work on the projects page.

We strive to keep our administrative costs to an absolute minimum.Over 99% of our income goes directly to our projects. We have no paid staff in the UK. When visiting projects, trustees pay their own expenses.

We have fund raising branches in London, Norfolk and Cumbria. Events are held during the year - you can see details on the calendar. The Cumbrian branch runs a permanent stand at Farfield Mill; if you're near Sedburgh do call in and visit it. www.farfieldmill.org

Money Well Spent:

68p pays for everything an old person in our home needs for a day, including all medical fees and funerals.
£130 a year pays for the book budget for a primary school library so that new titles can be sourced every month.
£280 funds a solar streetlight in a rural Tibetan community and protects residents from the wild animals that live in the jungle right next door to the villages.

Our running costs are tiny, so every penny you give can make a difference: our staff in the UK all work pro bono.
