Tibetans in Britain: Tibetan Community in Britain turns 50

Kunleng discusses the beginning of the Tibetan Community in Britain starting with the four Tibetan students who enrolled at the Rugby School in 1913 on British Government scholarship, and Rinchen Lhamo’s settlement in Britain when she married Louis Magrath King, former British Consul at Dartsedo. Currently there are about 800 Tibetans living in the UK, many who are involved in community actions for resolving Tibet issues.

This interview was conducted with Tsering Passang, former Chairman of the Tibetan Community in Britain, by Tsering Wangmo, host at Voice of America (VOA) Tibetan.
