Our work


Learn about our hard-hitting human rights, political, economic, environmental, and socio-cultural campaigns aimed at gaining successes for Tibetans inside Tibet, and raising the costs of occupation for the Chinese government.


At SFT-India we organize a range of programs including youth leadership trainings to empower Tibetan and Indian young people to become effective change-makers, and outreach programs to introduce Indian and other non-Tibetan youth to the Tibetan freedom movement.

Get Involved

From hosting talks by researchers, authors, filmmakers and activists, to rapid response awareness and solidarity actions, to candlelight vigils, weekly film screenings, and grassroots street actions, we keep ourselves busy and on our feet the whole year round!

Frequently asked questions


How does SFT work?

SFT is a grassroots organization where chapters play a pivotal role in spreading awareness on our campaigns and the Tibet movement. An SFT chapter works the same way other groups and clubs at your school or college. How you setup your chapter is based largely on the needs of your members. Some chapters elect Chapter Coordinator, Secretaries, Treasurers, etc., and other chapters are less formal in their administration. There is no minimum or maximum number of members you can have in your chapter- some of our chapters have 5 members, while others have over 100!


Does the SFT-India Office run Students for a Free Tibet?

No! YOU do! SFT is a student-run organization. We have full-time staff who communicate with the chapters to get feedback and take input on what you want SFT to be doing. Everyone in SFT has a voice, and we encourage all of our members to speak up.


How much do I have to know about Tibet?

You will want to know at least the basic history of Tibet as well as the current situation in Tibet today. Don’t worry if you don’t know all of that yet! We will provide you with a lot of information to get you started, and you can get info on this site, where we have links to many other informative resources.


What if I don't have time to work on everything?

Don't stress out about having to work on too many things! School should be your first priority—no exceptions. Do the things that you want to do, that you feel comfortable doing, and that work with your schedule. The main thing is to be positive, and remember that this should be fun and inspiring for you and your chapter members.


What will I get out of this?

We at SFT believe that each student has the potential to be a leader and we work hard through our youth leadership trainings to harness your skills so that YOU become an agent of change. You acquire leadership skills, as well as public speaking, strategizing, campaigning and fundraising. Most importantly, you get the satisfaction of helping millions of Tibetans who need your support more than ever!


Can an Indian Student start SFT-Chapter?

Yes, they can! We have a lot of Indian members and not only have they started chapters, they have led the movement, revived old chapters and have been with us every step of the way. More power to you!
