“I Love Tibet” is a student volunteer initiative that not only helps Tibetan blind children and orphans, but also offers a great opportunity for our students to learn how to be givers instead of receivers. The program started 10 years ago by one of our Kent School senior students.
“Ten years ago, we started with one person”, reflected Chloe Mao, program director 2019-2020. Since then, our “I Love Tibet” program has expanded its team from volunteers from one single private boarding school to over 15 private boarding schools and colleges in both the US and China. Over the past decade, “I Love Tibet” impacted not only the lives of the Tibetan children, but also of our volunteers. During our trips, our volunteers not only learn about a different culture, but also gain new perspectives on life and their place in the world. Many of our volunteers return in subsequent years to continue to offer their assistance.
