Tibet Girls School
Recipient of the 2010 Women and Engaged Buddhism Award, the Tibet Girls School was opened in 2008 in Eastern Tibet providing housing, food, clothing, education, healthcare and job training for nomad girls. In 2010, our school was destroyed by a massive earthquake.
After the Earthquake
Investing in the Women & Girls of Tibet
The Tibet Girls School will carry on its mission through our partnership with Machik, a non-profit organization founded in 2002. Our funds support the Machik Mother's Wish initiative, providing scholarships to young nomadic women who do not have equal access to formal education. Tibet Girls School and Machik are committed to building a global network of support for the bold and resilient women of Tibet who are seeking new ways of remaking their world, one inspired step at a time.
We are so grateful to our many generous supporters and wish you to know that you are making a difference in the lives of our girls. Our first class arrived out of the mountains, illiterate and now they can read and write Tibetan and Chinese and are computer literate as well.
