Community Development

In order to help the various Tibetan communities settled as refugees in India, Samten Tse Charitable Society (STCS) has over the years supported many new projects as well as development and expansion activities.

Within the last year it has given financial help in expansion of the Rajpur Tibetan Community shrine hall, renovation and extension of the settlement community shrine at Dekyi Ling, and its support and aid to the Organization for Humane Treatment of Animals and the Society for Promotion of Vegetarianism.
