Give a rural Tibetan youth an enriching summer!

Getting Set for 2011 Summer Enrichment Program!

Machik’s 2011 Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) will be held from July 22 through August 19, convening 100 rural Tibetan students from across the Tibetan plateau. Over 40 volunteers, including local Tibetans, Chinese, Americans and Canadians will teach subjects ranging from entrepreneurship to theater and film-making. Students from Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, Appleby College in Toronto, and Fudan Fuzhong in Shanghai will work with Chungba students on the Cultural Mapping Project (CMP), a project to build a model of depicting the cultural landscape of a Tibetan rural community.

Core classes will include Tibetan, science, math, English, and computer skills. Electives will include music, art, film and theater. A special course on social entrepreneurship has been seeded by $300 raised by the 2010 SEP class from their small business selling handmade postcards!

The 2011 SEP promises to be another dynamic opportunity to support the enrichment education of rural Tibetan youth, but it cannot happen without your support. With an expanded program, our projected budget has increased and we need the support of the GlobalGiving community to raise $10,000 for this one-of-a-kind program. Donate today to provide a unique summer enrichment experience for youth from across the Tibetan plateau!
