SOS VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE

THF has set up a Vocational Training facility in order to provide career options to students who have little or no inclination to pursue an academic course. To empower such students with skill in a trade or art form that is best suited to his/her aptitude which has the potential for a definite lifelihood career. The training curriculum includes traditional Tibetan Thanka (scroll painting) painting, Oil Painting, traditional Tibetan or modern dress making, professional driving, hair dressing etc. The students are trained by traditionally qualified teacher or instructor. Apart from equipping the students for a career, it also contributes, in a small way through, to sustaining some of the unique Tibetan art forms. Presently, there are 35 students and 9 instructors/trainers and administrative personnel.
