Tibetan youth finishing secondary school do not have the academic scores, skills and self- confidence to excel in post-secondary education or work and break the cycle the poverty that is prevalent in Tibetan settlements. The Enhanced Education for Tibetan Youth (EETY) Project will build capacity of the Tibetan education system in India and Nepal which includes 67 schools and a current enrollment of approximately 20,000 students. The five-year project will be implemented jointly by Agriteam Canada through the Central Tibetan Administration’s (CTA) Social and Resource Development Unit (SARD)and Department of Education (DoE) and build on the achievements of the Improving Education Quality and Learning for Tibetan Children in India and Nepal project (IEQL, Global Affairs Canada,2015-2017).
The project will address the need to empower Tibetan youth for the transition from Tibetan schools to tertiary education or employment and contribute to the sustainability of the Tibetan education system. EETY is conceptualized around three intermediate outcomes: an improved home and school environment that supports female and male students’ academic achievement and transition to post-secondary education and work; increased adoption of effective teaching practices; and improved planning and management practices at the Department of Education (DoE) and two of the autonomous organizations that operate schools.
