Donate your leftover currency to the Tibetan Education and Relief Association
The Tibetan Education & Relief Association including Himalayan Communities – or ‘T.E.R.A.’ – was founded in 1986, and since then has been creating better lives for the very poorest people of impoverished multi-ethnic communities in India, Nepal & Tibet.
Throughout its history, T.E.R.A. has helped to support these people with what the western world would consider as ‘basic needs’ – education, health and welfare. Thanks to direct personal connections with representatives on the ground in Nepal and India, the charity is well-placed to quickly respond to requests for help. Through the dedication and commitment of a small international team, their support has reached thousands of people by transforming your donations into emergency food parcels for Covid-19 relief, medications and equipment for lepers, school fees for children, outside toilets for a rural community, winter uniforms for schoolchildren, and so many more essentials that they would otherwise struggle to find, or simply not have at all.
The pictures below are images from recent sponsorship, including an elderly widow whose house in India needed emergency building repairs (early 2021), and Covid-19 food parcels for lepers and an orphanage in Nepal (2020.
T.E.R.A.’s Executive Members accept no salary and voluntarily pay for their own expenses so that 100% of your donation goes directly to those in most need.
For information on their latest project work, visit their website at tera-charity.ngo, where you can also see their archives, newsletters, Blog, and project histories. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter (TERACharity).
T.E.R.A. is an unincorporated charity registered with the Charity Commission of England & Wales; registration number 802974.
PLEASE NOTE: T.E.R.A. is actively seeking funds to support its established and ongoing projects, which are its priorities for the foreseeable future. It is not able to grant funds to other organisations or individuals, so please do not send unsolicited requests for funding. Thank you.
