TVP is a non-profit, non-political organization dedicated to alleviating poverty through sustainable development projects and preserving the rich cultural heritage of Tibet. TVP is operated by its volunteer board members and staff, led by Tamdin Wangdu, the founder and executive director of TVP who is from Tibet and now lives in US. Overhead costs such as office space and office supplies are donated, and operational costs are covered by earned income through volun-tourism trips to Tibet and gift sales. All TVP donors receive monthly project updates by email and an annual finance and project report at the end of each fiscal year. In this way, you - the donor - know exactly what TVP has done with your money and the difference we, together, have made in the lives of many Tibetans.
