History of TYAE

An increase in awareness of one's own situation as refugees as well as the moral responsibility to our own people and country led to the foundation of the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) in the Spring of 1970.

 “Tibetan youth from Switzerland, Germany, England and France regularly met up in the 1960s in Trogen. The Tibetan Youth Association in Europe emerged later from these gatherings.” K. Chokteng, Member of the first TYAE work committee

Since its founding, the TYAE has been active in various areas in order to meet its objectives.
