Life at 13,000+ feet isn’t easy.
Life for nomadic people of the Tibetan plateau is difficult. The high altitude, sparse vegetation, extreme temperatures and weather, among other more modern challenges such as alcoholism and very limited access to healthcare, take a toll on families and lead to orphaned and abandoned children. In addition, illiteracy is also very high in the region, and the Tibetan language and culture is at risk. Tadra Project was founded to save these children and give them love, education, and a solid start in life, while preserving their language and culture.
How Tadra Helps
Tadra identifies children in grave need. When children are referred to us, our staff visits with them to assess their needs and quickly intervenes to begin providing:
A safe and loving environment provided by nurturing "mothers", nutrition, basic healthcare, clothing and other necessities
Award winning elementary and secondary education, vocational training, life skills, and university preparatory opportunities
Instruction and training in the Tibetan language and culture in order to help preserve the children’s identities and the Tibetan culture
We are blessed with the opportunity to transform the lives of so many orphans from facing extreme adversity to living with hope and opportunity.
“I met a group of street children during a journey to Tibet, an encounter that changed my life. Since 2014 I have devoted myself 100% to the project – on an unpaid basis. I desire to play my part in ensuring the continued existence of the TADRA project.”
