We thank Mr. Tenzin Norsang the proprietor of LatengOnline for his free service in hosting and domain renewal of our school website for many years.

Following the Chinese limited liberalization policy of the 1980s, Tibetans by the thousands crossed over to India to seek freedom from suppression and persecution. Among the escapees there were a sizable number of illiterate young adults who needed help in education as well as eventual integration into society. The Cabinet Secretariat of the Tibet Administration (Kashag) founded an adult education school in 1986 at Bir 75 km from Dharamsala. It was named New Tibetan School, and there were 68 students who lived and studied in rental houses there.
Later in 1990, the Kashag entrusted the responsibility of running the school to TCV, as it had the required experience and capacity to do so.
At the time of TCV's takeover, there were already 322 young adults with many joining day by day. When the school was in its early development; there was neither proper curriculum, nor adequate infrastructure.
For TCV, it was a moment of great challenge. Everything had to be reorganized and restructured in a systematic manner, keeping in mind the unique needs of adult newcomer students.
New policy guidelines were worked out with the aim of standardizing the education and opening other options and opportunities for further education and training. In spite of considerable struggles in the efforts to create a new kind of school within the TCV system, Bir School eventually came out a success.
The school has adapted well to the new system of education in accordance with the Central Board of Secondary Education curriculum.
The successful handling of the adult school at Bir let to another development in TCV's continual efforts in combating the overcrowding problems. SOS Kinderdorf International agreed to fund the establishment of a completely new SOS Village at Bir. A plot of seven acres of land was bought around the TCV Bir School, and hectic construction of the Children's Village was undertaken. A first batch of 27 children from Tibet arrived even when the village was not formally opened. Temporary arrangements were made for them. As the major part of the construction was completed in 1994 and the required infrastructures created, a fresh batch 303 children from Tibet joined the Village.
