Machik's Summer Enrichment Program is a unique summer learning opportunity for Tibetan youth from the Tibetan plateau. The program brings young Tibetan students from the Tibetan region together with volunteers from across the PRC and around the world for a four week program of dynamic learning and exchange.

This year SEP will host 60 Tibetan youths from July 26 to August 20. Program areas range from English, Tibetan, science, math and business to film, music, theater and art. Special themes for the 2010 SEP include Health, Entrepreneurship, and Environment. Nearly 40 international and local volunteers - including students from Cornell University's Operation D.E.E.P., Sidwell Friends School, Fudan High School, and Columbia University will be participating.

Thanks to the generosity of our many supporters, this year's SEP promises to be another dynamic and powerful opportunity to support and enrich connections to Tibetan language, culture and history among Tibetan youth. However, we are still over $4,000 short of our projected budget. Please consider giving today to help us fully-fund this unique and important program.
