Based in Dharamshala, northern India, and founded by a group of young Tibetan journalists with the support of the Himalayan Literacy Trust (HLT), TPI is a non-profit organisation whose main objective is to promote democratic values and principles through freedom of expression in the Tibetan exile community and in Tibet. Originally founded in 2007 as Tibetan News, the organisation was registered as HLT in 2010 and became an accredited partner of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) in 2011. on 10 December 2012, HLT launched a bi-monthly English-language magazine in the Himalayan town of McLeod Ganj in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh, India.
For the past fifteen years since 2007, TPI has published The Tibet Post International online in English, along with three other dedicated websites in English, Tibetan, and Chinese. Each print issue of The Tibet Post International can be downloaded from The Tibet Post International's sister website, Tibet News Online. Filling a gap in freedom of information and expression within Tibet, HLT seeks to build bridges between Tibet and the rest of the world.
