Conversation with Thupten Rinzin La
Hosted by Tenzing Dhamdul, FNVA

In an insightful conversation on the Unsilenced: Voices of Young Tibetans podcast series, we had the privilege to speak with Thupten Rinzin la. He was the then Coordinator of the India Tibet Coordination Office and shares his personal journey, experiences and future aspirations. Revealing the answer to the big question which we all ask and that is of how does one become a Civil Servant at the Central Tibetan Administration also known as the Tibetan
Government in Exile?

Thupten Rinzin provides a comprehensive account of his journey within the Central Tibetan Administration also known at the Tibetan Government-in-Exile since his induction in 2014, illuminating various avenues for involvement in civil service within it. Serving as the former Coordinator of the India Tibet Coordination Office, headquartered in New Delhi, he delves into the strategic initiatives devised to bolster support networks for Tibetans residing in India,
with a special emphasis on empowering the younger generation through targeted engagement programs.

Drawing from personal experience, Thupten Rinzin reflects on the transformative impact of the Tibetan Scholarship Program, an initiative spearheaded by the US government in collaboration with the Tibet Fund. As a beneficiary of this program, which facilitates the pursuit of higher education in the United States for Tibetan refugees, he highlights its
profound contribution to the holistic development of the Tibetan diaspora.

Despite transitioning from his role as Coordinator, Thupten Rinzin’s enduring commitment to the Central Tibetan Administration remains palpable. His ongoing efforts serve as a testament to the unwavering dedication towards advancing the interests of the Tibetan community and cultivating mutually beneficial partnerships for its sustained growth and prosperity.

Disclaimer: This session was recorded during Thupten Rinzin’s tenure as the Coordinator of the India Tibet Coordination Office. While he currently serves in the Social and Resource Development Fund (SARD) of the Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamshala, his insights remain valuable.
