Sambhota Tibetan School, Paonta is located at a town called Paonta Sahib, district Sirmour, Himachal Pradesh in north India. The school was initially set up with 50 children by the Tibetan Industrial Rehabilitation Society (TIRS) in 1968 as a temporary arrangement to provide education to the children of Tibetan Refugees settled at Bhuppur, Paonta Sahib, H.P. From its humble beginning in 1968 till today, the school has functioned under different Managements.
The initial phase of its major development has taken place around 1977 when the management of the school was passed on to Tibetan Homes Foundation (THF). At the same time, the school also had good fortune to come into contact with Mrs. Christa Kraft of Germany. Proper planning and implementation for long term infrastructural development of the school started with her support.
The first phase of development of the school was further strengthened when the management of the school was taken over by Council for Tibetan Education, (Department of Education) Central Tibetan Administration of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Gangchen Kyishong, Dharamsala, H.P. Under the management of the DOE, the school found its mentor/sponsor in Mr. Hiro Sukeyasu of Japan. Because of generous support of the sponsor and others –Japanese who love Tibet, there are adequate infrastructural facilities in the school at present. The school is one of the leading senior secondary schools, which is providing quality education to the Tibetan children.
