Providing food for Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala



Alleviating hunger in a community of Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India. By building a community kitchen, we hope to provide this community with free, healthy and traditional meals.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The problem being addressed by this project is widespread hunger and malnutrition in a community of Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India. The refugees arrive in this small mountain town after having crossed the Himalayas by foot, a journey that can take one to two months, with nothing more than the clothes on their back. By building this kitchen, our hope is that we will provide this community with free, healthy, and traditional meals which will allow them to go to school and start working.

How will this project solve this problem?

By providing the Tibetan refugee community in Dharamsala with free and healthy food, we will allow them to focus their attention on going to school and finding jobs. The first wealth is health, and we hope to get this community on its feet.

Potential Long Term Impact

This kitchen will alleviate hunger and malnutrition for over 200 Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala by providing them with free meals. This will allow them to get healthy enough to go to school and find jobs.
