One of THF's principal aims in Lhasa was to revive the disappearing traditional Tibetan building skills. With the help of our teachers, the last great old building masters of Lhasa, we organized a training program where over 300 young Tibetan men and women participated. Many are working in their field today. The training progam is now in its third generation, with graduates now themselves giving training in Qinghai and Sichuan and even Mongolia.
Exchange is part of our capacity-building program. In Mongolia, the training program included the setting up the traditional manufacturing of bricks and roof tiles by Chinese experts. In Sichuan and Qinghai, we introduced the central Tibetan arga roofing technique. In Ladakh the Indian NGO Sparc helped us to set up a savings group in Leh.
