Message from Speaker of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile:
The Federation of Tibetan Co-operatives in India is a national level federal body of all Tibetan Co-operative Societies in India. It was registered according to law on 20th April 2005. As of now, it has 15 members who are the different Tibetan Co-operative Societies existing in the major Tibetan Settlements all over India. The shareholders of these Societies are the people living in the settlements which form the majority of the Tibetans in India.
The main aim of this Federation is the upliftment of the social and economic condition of its members. Therefore the well-being of the majority of Tibetans in India would, to a large extend, depend on the success of this Federation.
The Federation is now and trying very hard to find its feet to shoulder the heavy responsibilities. It needs the support and cooperaton of all those who are concerned about the social and economic betterment of the Tibetan people.
The Parliament-in-Exile therefore, strongly recommends and solicits the full financial backing from all friends and well wishers of Tibet.
