Since 1992 Denmark has supported the Tibetan Community-in-Exile in India.
The overall purpose of the support is to contribute to the preservation of Tibetan culture and the democratization of the Tibetan Community-in-Exile.
Since 2006, Danish assistance is designed to support the Central Tibetan Administration-in-Exile (CTA) and its Department of Education (DoE) in implementing the Basic Education Policy (BEP), which aims at “developing a system of education having Tibetan traditional education as the core, and modern education as its essential co-partner”.
The present project focusses on the fundamental right to education for all Tibetans and the preservation of Tibetan cultural and educational heritage and the Tibetan language.
The project supports the implementation of the BEP in all schools under the CTA/DoE authority and consolidates the capacity required to ensure sustainability and the continuous development of education quality in schools for Tibetans in the Exile Community.
Focus on improved teacher education, continued curriculum development, development of teaching and learning materials, and improved school infrastructure including physical improvements and supply of ICT equipment.
Another main focus is to continue the publication and terminology standardization program to ensure that the standardized Tibetan language is used by teachers and students.
Finally, focus will be on supporting that more students will continue secondary education within vocational education and training.
The project is in line with Denmark’s new strategy “The World 2030”, and it especially addresses UN Sustainable Development Goals No. 4 Quality Education and No 16 Peace, justice and strong institutions.
