Based in Dharamshala, northern India, TPI founded by a group of young Tibetan journalists under the auspices of the Himalayan Literacy Trust (HLT), as a non-profit-making organization and was with the primary goal of promoting democracy through freedom of expression within Tibetan communities, both in exile and in Tibet. Initially established as Press of Tibet in 2007, it was registered as HLT in 2010 and in 2011 became an accredited partner of Reporters Without Borders (RSF). HLT launched a bi-monthly English-language newspaper, in Himalayan hill town of McLeod Ganj, Dharamshala, Himachal State of India, on December 10, 2012.
In the past ten years, TPI has published The Tibet Post International online, in English, along with three other dedicated English, Tibetan and Chinese-language websites. Every issue of TPI’s print newspaper is also available in a downloadable version from the TPI sister website called Tibet News Online. Filling the absence of freedom of information and expression within Tibet, HLT attempts to bridge the gap between Tibet and the rest of the world.
