BENEFITING: TIBETAN VILLAGE PROJECT

EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2013

Shannon Briggs

THE STORY:

Tibet is one of the few places in the world where pastoral nomadism remains, but with the growing pressures of urbanization and land privatization the culture is diminishing rapidly.

In August, members of Tibetan Village Project, a film crew, and I (a graduate student of Pepperdine University for Social Entrepreneurship and Change) will travel to Tibet to raise awareness for women's health, entrepreneurship and sustainable tourism.

My specific role will be conducting surveys and interviews as an assessment that can be used to design and improve TVP’s Tibet Social Entrepreneurship Initiative (TSEI). The initiative stems from the phrase, "give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for life.”  The objectives of TVP are to alleviate poverty and preserve Tibetan culture by providing culturally-appropriate skills training, business education, and enterprise loans (www.tibetanvillageproject.org).
