SFT-India staff along with members of SFT-delhi and volunteers spent almost 15 days in Gaya to spread message of Lhakar movement, Nomad Rights campaign and Tech Training.

A special discussion on ‘Lhakar- Tibetan Freedom Movement’ was organised in which  Tendor, SFT International Director, Free Tibet Activist Shingza Rinpoche and Tenzin Tsundue took part as speakers. The discussion was started by observing candle light vigil for those Tibetans who sacrificed their lives by putting themselves fire to protest against Chinese Communist Regime in Tibet. SFT also succeeded in organizing some of the Tech training which included mobile and internet security training for Tibetans.

We felt fortunate to have Hundreds of Tibetans from inside Tibet who visited our stall with tears in their eyes and hope in their hearts. This was the most valuable gift for us and strengthened our faith that one day we will be together when Tibet will be Free.

About INDIA: Stand Up for Tibet-Petition

We will deliver this petition on October 2nd, 2012 - Gandhi Jayanti - a day that symbolizes our nation’s ability to reject colonial rule, to recognize freedom as our birthright, and to regain our independence. National wide Candle Light Vigil wil be organised by our Indian Members and supporters in all the Indian major cities that day. Tibet Needs You Now! Students for a Free Tibet, India (SFT India) is the India National Network of Students for a Free Tibet International, which has over 650 chapters in more than 35 countries. We are a Non-Profit Organization funded entirely by our members and supporters. Founded in the year 2000 from a very humble beginning as a loose network of few young activists and students based in Dharamshala campaigning for Tibet’s Independence, SFT India has grown as nation-wide network of youth, campaigning for the Fundamental Rights of the Tibetan people, and we are still growing. It is from our grassroots network that we gain our strength. To ensure the effectiveness of our grassroots network, we create awareness and sensitize the world on the just cause of Tibet. We believe that young people can and must take responsibility to change our world for the better.
