Charleston Tibetan Society is a non-profit religious and educational organization under the spiritual direction of Geshe Dakpa Topgyal. It was founded in 1994 with three missions: to increase the awareness of Tibet and its unique culture, to bring the major world religions together to make a more effective contribution to humanity and world peace, and to raise funds to help Tibetan refugees living in India, Nepal and Bhutan.
The Charleston Tibetan Society is associated with and/or supports several projects throughout the world that strive to bring shelter, education and relief to both the international Tibetan community and the "human" community at large. These projects endeavor to preserve Tibetan culture and contribute to the over all well being of humanity.
Current CTS projects include:
