Dear Machik Friends,
This past year, we had the opportunity to serve as coordinators of Machik's Summer Enrichment Program.
From start to finish, putting together SEP 2012 was an incredible challenge! We were learning on our feet and overcoming obstacles the whole way through - from our unexpected relocation to the city of Kunming, to the long search for a stage for the students' final performance.
But we have also never laughed, cried, danced or sung as much as we did this past summer. It was especially a joy to work with students from the Shigatse School for the Blind. SEP opened our hearts in all directions and we will never forget the spirit of solidarity that connected us all - Tibetans, Chinese and young people from around the world.
Thank you for supporting our work in Tibet! Check out this video Ellie made for us to remember SEP 2012. And we hope you will see that this fiercely determined program shows what a better, brighter future for Tibetans and Chinese might one day look like.
