Here is a compilation of helpful resources, all relating to women’s empowerment and Tibet.  They have been extremely helpful to me and I highly recommend looking into the exciting growth of the women’s empowerment movement, as well as the ongoing and ever-escalating Tibetan issue.

Also, if you are on Facebook, consider liking the RVP Facebook page to receive updates from these sources and others like them.

Women’s Empowerment: 

  • Tibetan Women’s Association (advocacy, education, and action for Tibetan women in Tibet and in exile)
  • Half the Sky Movement (mobilizing the globe to promote empowerment, education, and equality for women)
  • Tibetan Nuns Project (supporting the education, health care, and cultural heritage of refugee Tibetan nuns)
  • New Light (promoting equality, education, and life-skills in India; empowering and supporting abuse survivors)

Tibet (projects and organizations):
