The Graduates

Kelsang and his friend Tenzin are both graduating seniors from the Tibetan Children’s Village, commonly known as TCV. In their spare time they publish Exile World, a small newspaper that serves as an important voice for young Tibetan writers living in exile. Since 2009, over 140 Tibetans have self-immolated, protesting for freedom in Tibet and the desire of all Tibetans to see the Chinese Communist Party allow the return of the Dalai Lama to Tibet.
