Tibetan Village Project (TVP) is a non profit, non-political organization that started in 2001 after the founder, Tamdin Wangdu, lost his father during the attempt to seek medical assistance in their village of Sihurong in the Kham and Amdo regions of Tibet. Run solely by Tibetans, TVP is dedicated to promoting sustainable development, medical development and entrepreneurship while preserving the rich cultural heritage of Tibet.
Tamdin’s initial project of bringing health care to rural Tibet has expanded its programs and grown into a multifaceted organization helping many villages. TVP now has programs supporting clinics, schools, and community projects in 3 Tibetan villages. Currently UC Berkeley is working with TVP on their latest endeavor of establishing clean water for Tibetans.
