Dear GlobalGiving Community,


Thank you for your continued support and interest in Tibet. With regard to the Tibetan Youth Leadership Training, we continue to have this project on hold. Our attention is focused on some of our other projects such as the program for education in conflict. 

Also, the Central Tibet Administration was busy with elections and the new government taking office. Over the last few months, we are happy to say that we have had the opportunity to renew our connection with the new Tibetan Representative to the United States. This should help us get back to work on our Tibetan initiatives. We hope to take the work forward soon.

Your contributions and suggestions help us take our work forward. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Mary

Dear GlobalGiving Community,


Thank you for your continued support of our projects. With regard to the Tibetan Youth Leadership Training, progress for this quarter this project has been temporarily put on hold. Some of our other projects need more urgent attention and personnel have diverted in that direction.

In terms of the progress in the last few months, we have developed the training modules further and have also shortlisted a few native American youth groups who may send a representative to do a session strategies employed by them towards culturlal preservation. We hope to take the work forward soon.

Your contributions and suggestions help us take our work forward. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Mary

Dear GlobalGiving Community,


Thank you for your continued support of our projects. With regard to the Tibetan Youth Leadership Training, progress for this quarter has been slow as we have had our staff take a break for the summer. We have continued our research for developing the content for the five day training. At this point we our paring down our research to create a tighter and more relevant fit between practical skills and the theoretical content. The training will balance between informational sessions and those focussed on practical skills. A youth group with a successful strategy and contribution to cultural preservation of their community is also being identified. We hope to have a representative of the group fly down to India to present their case. 

Your contributions and suggestions help us take our work forward. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Mary

Dear GlobalGiving Community,


Thank you for your continued support of our projects. With regard to the Tibetan Youth Leadership Training, we continue to develop the modules for the training. The training  includes theoretical perspectives on youth leadership, cultural preservation and the significance of youth leaders in preserving culture. Particular emphasis is being given to preservation of culture for communities based outside their homeland as victims of conflict. Case scenarios are being developed and the training will also provide practical experience of developing hard skills.

With regard to the Training in Diplomacy for Tibetan diplomats, the Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamsala has informed us that owing to the recently concluded elections the discussions around the next round of training will be put on hold until next year.  

Your contributions and suggestions help us take our work forward. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Mary

Dear GlobalGiving Community,

 
Thank you for your continued support of our projects. The Tibetan Youth Leadership Training was put on hold for a bit as we needed to divert our attention to other pressing concerns. We have recently begun to refocus on both the Tibet projects soon. Work on the Tibetan Youth Leadership Training and the Training in Diplomacy for Tibetan diplomats is expected to be finalized by July. Currently, our project officers are fleshing out the details of the modules for the Youth Leadership Training and recruiting trainers both from within India as well as outside India. We are looking for a trainer from communities outside India that are engaged in youth leadership training with an emphasis on cultural preservation. Your suggestions are welcome!!

Sincerely,

Mary
