Tong-Len Charitable Trust - Compassion in Action: charity based in dharamsala supporting displaced communities in Himachal Pradesh, India. Compassion in Action

Tong-Len Charitable Trust

Tong-Len Charitable Trust was founded by a group of Tibetan refugees living in McLeod Ganj, an old hill station in the foothills of the Himalayas, about half an hour's drive from Dharamsala. (McLeod Ganj is home to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a large population of Tibetan refugees who were forced into exile following the Chinese invasion of Tibet). They wanted to give something back to the local Indian community who have welcomed and supported them during their time in exile.
