Academic-NGO Partnerships

dr04_0715

Academics and community service specialists have complementary expertise, and yet typically do not collaborate closely in Tibetan areas. The Tibet Center fosters communication, coordination, and collaboration between higher education institutions and community service organizations to bring maximum benefit to Tibetan communities. It works particularly closely with Machik, a non-profit based in Washington DC that focuses on empowering Tibetan communities. However, it also collaborates with many other NGOs, and especially domestic NGOs in Tibet.
