The Government of TAR, PRC is improving the livelihood and secular education of the Tibetan population in Tibetan Plateau. Therefore, all CTTF projects in the field of education are coordinated to enhance existing projects approved by TAR and PRC governments on the Tibetan Plateau.

CTTF is providing supplemental financial aid to Tibetan children from poor rural communities who received scholarships from the TAR Government due to their academic excellence to attend universities in Mainland China. Without the grants from CTTF, these bright young Tibetan students are unable to take advantage of the Government’s help, as their parents cannot afford the extra expenses of attending University. These financial aids have enabled these bright young Tibetans to obtain good jobs back home in the TAR areas after the completion of their higher studies.

For several years CTTF has successfully conducted an annual Winter Intensive Language Training for approximately 50 Tibetan children grades 2-6 for a period of one month.  During this month long intensive language training, the children are also taught hygiene, moral science, bio-ecosystem and the environment.  The Winter Intensive Training has been very popular with the local eight village communities (1000 households) and is affiliated to the Mamba Elementary School.

The intensive instructions and personal attention given to the trainees during the Winter Camps has helped them to continue their middle and high school studies.

The students receiving the training come from rural and semi-nomadic communities between Lhasa and he Drikung-Mamba areas of Terdrom (i.e. Parakha).  These semi nomadic communities include 100 households in Zhathang; 300 households in Rimdhoga (a village at the entrance of Terdrom); 50 households in Kongpo Tsar RA, 200 households in Rasezhul (main village center below the Drikung Thil Monastery); 400 households in Bhamdho; 100 semi nomadic households in Dhardruk; 200 households in Tharwa Nang.

The objectives of this project are to train and support rural Tibetans children at the Elementary school age to enable them to pursue higher education and for them to realize their dreams of becoming teachers, nurses, physicians, scientist, engineers, and businessmen and women.
