A Tibetan College in Bangalore soon to be a reality

Dharamsala, August 12 - The former president of TCV and presently the Chairman of the Executive Council of Tibetan Children’s Village’s (TCV), Mrs. Jetsun Pema, today expressed complete hope that a Tibetan College in the Indian IT city of Bangalore would be fully functional in 2-3 years time from now.

Briefing a group of Tibetan Media today in the northern Indian hill town of Dharamsala, Mrs. Pema La told the gathering that the initial preliminary construction process of the Tibetan college in Bangalore had already been finalised and further added that the construction laying work too is already going in full swing.

The budget for this upcoming college in Bangalore is estimated to be at US$10 million and the Executive Council of TCV is optimistic that the fund will be realized in time.

Once completed, the college will have capacity to accommodate and cater the educational need of 3000 Tibetan students in pursuit of their higher university level studies.

As of now, after completing 12 years of schooling- mostly in Tibetan schools, majority of Tibetan students join various colleges in different parts of India to continue their further studies.

This, Mrs. Pema has long been feeling, is creating a cultural gap among Tibetan youngsters once they come out of Indian Universities after completing their further studies.

“One of the primary objectives of coming out with this ambitious project, the biggest ever educational undertaking by TCV”, Mrs. Pema notes, “is the need to keep the young Tibetans culturally bonded together even while pursuing their higher studies, which has been one of my growing concerns in recent times”.

In this way, Mrs. Pema feels, a separate Tibetan college affiliated to a recognized Indian University will not only provide a unique Tibetan atmosphere for the Tibetan college-goers it will also be much easier for TCV to give the Tibetan students a better learning environment with better facilities unlike the present trend, which is proving the organization financially more expensive.

Among other things, Ama La, as Mrs. Pema la is more popularly known to thousands of Tibetan children, is quick to add that the new upcoming Tibetan college will also have enough space to organise and perform Tibetan cultural activities and Tibetan language is another thing on the list.

If everything works out as planned, for the first time in more than 50 years of exiled life, the future Tibetan students will soon have a Tibetan college of their own to rush for admissions.
