Tibet Match 2018: Double your donation for one week only!

Every pound you donate to Tibet Watch between 12 noon (GMT) Tuesday 20 February and 12 midnight (GMT) Tuesday 27 February will be matched (up to a total of £6,000). You can donate from anywhere in the world at freetibet.org/tibetmatch (link will be live from Tuesday 20 February, 12 noon).

Have you read news from Tibet on our website or taken action in one of our campaigns? None of this would be possible without our research partner Tibet Watch.

Without Tibet Watch, Free Tibet couldn't turn the international media spotlight on Tibet, couldn't provide evidence to the UN of China's human rights abuses and couldn't obtain the up-to-date information we need to continue our campaigns.

Tibetans risk life imprisonment for speaking out about the lack of freedom, so Tibet Watch must protect its sources by ensuring its communication systems aren't vulnerable to intrusion. As Tibetans with friends and family living under occupation, our researchers must also maintain their own anonymity. 

Will you help Tibet Watch this February?

Tibet Watch relies entirely on individual donations. 

During Tibet Match any donation you make - up to the £6,000 total - will be doubled by a handful of generous benefactors.

From their field office in northern India, Tibet Watch researchers collate and corroborate testimonies and eye-witness accounts of human rights abuses in Tibet. 

With over a decade of experience, Tibet Watch is the most effective organisation in the world for sourcing and disseminating news from Tibet. 

Funds raised during Tibet Match will directly support the Tibet Watch field office. It costs:

  • $15 to heat the office during cold Himalayan winters
  • $40 for travel to interviews with Tibetan refugees
  • $100 for secure communications with contacts inside Tibet
  • $300 to help pay for researchers’ salaries

Can you support their work?
