TIBET TALKS: CHINA’S BOARDING SCHOOLS IN TIBET
Thursday, Nov. 30, 2023
12 noon EST / 9 am PST
Over 1 million Tibetan children have been separated from their families, language and culture at China’s state-run boarding schools in Tibet. These schools target the most vulnerable and impressionable minds and seek to make them loyal followers of the CCP. The goal is to sever the Tibetan way of life and cement China’s control over Tibet.
In this Tibet Talk, we’ll speak to Lhadon Tethong, director of Tibet Action Institute, an organization that has been raising awareness about the boarding schools. In conversation with ICT President Tencho Gyatso, Lhadon will discuss the impact of these schools on Tibetan families, the response from the global community and what needs to happen next.
Tibet Talks will stream on Facebook Live and on this webpage. The talk will also be released as a podcast, available on iTunes, Spotify and Google Podcasts. Learn more at savetibet.org/pod/.
