NGO Development Projects Active in Tibet



The past decade has seen an increasing number of NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) actively working to provide training and funds for programs aimed at enhancing the quality of life of Tibetan individuals, households and communities.  In conjunction with Professor Gray Tuttle and the Modern Tibet Program at Columbia University, Case Western Reserve University’s Center for Research on Tibet will be devoting a portion of its website to presenting information about the various NGOs working on the Tibetan Plateau.
