After many months of long days and late nights preparing, we are excited to be just three weeks from the start of Summer Enrichment Program 2013! We share some highlights of this year’s program (July 12 - Aug 10, 2013) with gratitude for your support:

  • Students from many Tibetan communities, mostly rural students lacking access to educational opportunities and infrastructure (many students travel several days to join this program!
  • Participation by several blind students from Braille Without Borders – Tibet
  • Volunteers from Tibet, China, Singapore, Canada and the U.S.
  • Volunteers from universities including: Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, American, Beijing Foreign Studies University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Minzu University of China
  • Core classes include English, Tibetan, Science, and Math, Elective classes from entrepreneurship to photography

Through curriculum design, expert guest speakers and activities, SEP this year will focus on two themes:

Environmental Conservation – Tibet is a key natural ecosystem in which some of the highest rates of climate change have been documented; and
Community Service Leadership – This is an expression of Machik's core value of building stronger communities through service to others.

Gifts of any amount will help this unique program promote intercultural exchange and learning among Tibetan, Chinese and global youth! 2013 SEP cannot happen without your support, Thuji che / Thank you!
