Founded in 1997, the Louisiana Himalaya Association Inc. (LHA) is a grassroots Social Work Organization dedicated to Social Work Services with Tibetan Refugees in the Himalayan regions of India and Nepal. Having made the treacherous journey by foot over the Himalayan Mountains to seek asylum, this displaced population faces monumental resettlement issues, especially in the fields of education, employment, healthcare, and housing. LHA fundraises and organizes volunteer efforts to support social service programs in India and Nepal which focus on these vital areas of life.

LHA has spent over a decade building a cross-cultural bridge which now functions to provide needed services to the Tibetan Community while making available their vast philosophical wisdom and profound cultural experience. Here in Louisiana, LHA works with Tulane University, Loyola University and Centenary College to host Tibetan teachers and organize Tibetan Cultural Events. These Universities also send student groups to India each summer. The students do volunteer service with and learn from the Tibetan programs supported by LHA.

Unlike most service organizations, LHA is totally volunteer staffed with no overhead expenses. All the managerial expenses and even the New Orleans office space is donated by our Board of Directors.

All of our Volunteers donate their own personal time and resources thus rendering LHA free of overhead expenses!

Be assured 100% of your donation goes directly to those in need.
