Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The International Campaign for Tibet (ICT) was established to support the Tibetan people's struggle for human rights and democratic freedoms. From a handful of dedicated individuals, ICT has grown into an international organization empowered by the vision of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

It is ICT's belief that the survival of Tibet's ancient wisdom culture is of profound importance to the very survival of the global community. At this urgent and critical moment in Tibetan history, we commit our energies and best efforts towards a peaceful solution for Tibet secured in the dignity of the Tibetan people.

For three decades, we have called the world's attention to the injustices and brutality being suffered by the people of Tibet. We've shone a spotlight on China's repressive authority and intervened on behalf of political prisoners.
