SOS Children's Villages Support in Bylakuppe

SOS Children's Villages has been present in India since 1963. In 1971, we started working with Tibetan Children’s Villages, an organization which supports people from Tibet, autonomous region of China who have settled in northern India. Tibetan Children’s Villages is an independent charity which is partly supported through SOS Children’s Villages' sponsorships.

Tibetan Children's Village Bylakuppe is located in the Lugsum Samdupling Tibetan Settlement, about 90 kilometers from Mysore city. The village was built between the two largest settlements, and has been supporting the local population for over three decades. All the children in the families have lost parental care; about half of the children have no parents and the other half have parents who are in Tibet, autonomous region of China or in other locations throughout India.
