(TibetanReview.net, Dec19, 2014) – The US Congress has sanctioned a $3 million fund under a new line item to fund Tibetan community projects in India and Nepal in the areas of health, development assistance, economic support, and refugee rehabilitation, said the exile Tibetan administration at Dharamshala, India, on its Tibet.net website Dec 17.

The statement quoted the US Congress appropriation bill as saying: “Funds appropriated by this Act under the headings ‘Global Health Programs’, ‘Development Assistance’, ‘Economic Support Fund’, and ‘Migration and Refugee Assistance’ shall be made available for programs to promote and preserve Tibetan culture and the resilience of Tibetan communities in India and Nepal, and to assist in the education and development of the next generation of Tibetan leaders from such communities.”

The statement said the US government had earlier sanctioned funds for the exile administration’s Department of Education, Department of Health and for the Tibetan Computer Resource Centre (TCRC) for internet security.

The Office of Tibet, the unofficial diplomatic mission of the exile Tibetan administration which recently shifted to Washington DC, will follow up on the details of the funding, the statement added.
