TBF Promotes sustainable economic development, cultural heritage preservation & environmental conservation on the Tibetan Plateau
In response to needs expressed by Tibetan communities, the organization was established as a not-for-profit project in July of 1996.
Our vision for every Tibetan living in China, down to the most remote nomad, is inclusion in a thriving community grounded in respect for Tibetan culture and values. As members of this community, all Tibetan are entitled to enjoy longer and healthier lives while sharing in and benefiting from a sound local economy, a well-protected environment and excellent opportunities for education.
While granting priority to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities - particularly nomadic and semi-nomadic populations - The Bridge Fund emphasizes self-reliance and promotes the development of regionally based, Tibetan-run institutions, organizations and businesses.
