Why is your donation so important?

Destitute children will have a future and become leaders in their communities. OFT works with each community to meet their needs, and this approach will build a successful, sustainable future.

Why is your support so important?

Your support spreads the news about the work that OFT is doing. It is really important to us, because it broadens the community of Canadians who care about the future of Tibet and its people.

Based on Buddhist values, all those who work for OFT including the executive, are volunteers. The corporate office is the kitchen table of our President, Jurme Wangda. This ensures that your donations go to the projects.
