About us

After the Chinese invasion and complete occupation of Tibet in the year 1959, thousands of Tibetans fled Tibet and followed H. H. the Dalai Lama and sought asylum in India, Nepal and Bhutan. For those Tibetans, who could reach and stayed in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, His Majesty's Government has so kindly allotted some land within the Kathmandu city area for rehabilitation of the Tibetan Refugees. Among the Tibetan Refugees, there were a few skilled Tibetan carpet weavers whose main occupation was carpet weaving in Tibet. Keeping in view of this expertise and to employ Tibetan refugees in carpet weaving to sustain their livelihood in future, the International Committee for Red Cross & Swiss Association for Technical Assistance (SATA) now called Swiss Development Co-operation (SDC) jointly establish the "Jawalakhel Handicraft Center " in 1960 with the kind Co-operation of His Majesty's Government of Nepal.
