Snapshots from Machik's Summer Enrichment Program

The Machik Team wants to share  pictures from the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) with you. SEP 2012 brought together Chinese, Tibetan and Global volunteers for a month to teach and learn from Tibetan children from mostly rural backgrounds.

We had our share of difficulties. The day before we were scheduled to start the program, we were told it would be advisable to move the program to another location due to heightened political sensitivities. Our volunteers and team responded to this with the resilience that drives the success of our work in a region of the world that is often unpredictable and difficult to work in.

Within 48 hours we secured another location and moved. And over the next 4 weeks, the magic of SEP unfolded! Educational enrichment, personal transformations, strong communities of trust for continued collaboration and learning...this and so much more was achieved thanks to your generous support and donations!

Please enjoy the pictures from the program. We hope you enjoy them!

We are grateful to you for making this work possible. Thuji che! Thank you!
