HELP PREPARE THE WELCOME
The people of this planet are like members of one human family. Our happiness is interrelated and dependent on the happiness of others. – His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
In 2007 the Dalai Lama asked the Canadian government to offer Tibetan refugees, who are currently in exile camps in India, the chance to resettle in Canada. The government agreed to relocate 1,000 Tibetans here by 2016.
On the Sunshine Coast we are raising money through Spirit Dance Centre, a local charitable organization, to sponsor the next round of Tibetan families and individuals to join the three families who arrived on the Coast this last winter. We are also involved in projects to make the Sunshine Coast a welcoming community and to promote understanding of Tibetan culture and philosophies.
Your donations to date have gone entirely toward supporting the first Tibetan families. They are now adjusting to our culture, attending school, receiving job training, doing part-time work and starting small businesses of their own.
Thank you to everyone!
