Tibet Matters: Community Hub provides a springboard for success

Empowering the Vision is our long standing youth empowerment project based in Delhi. It recently opened a new community hub, Sontsa, in Majnu Ka Tilla thanks to your generous support.

In November 2022, our director, Apa, left us to pursue new avenues. Apa had been with us for over six years and will be much missed. We thank her for her time with us and wish her much fulfilment in her new path.

We are delighted to welcome Kunsang Tsephel to the team as our new Director.

“I joined the team at a time when a much- needed community hub in Majnu Ka Tilla has finally opened. The co-working space has already attracted young Tibetans, especially job seekers, university students, and graduates, through our weekly events.

In the past two months, I have witnessed a broad range of programmes targeting Tibetan youth from schools, universities, graduates, dropouts, and the unemployed. The Tibetan Career Service programme has a free walk-in counselling facility that enables Tibetan youth to seek support in their exploring and identifying career options.

Recently, the Global Tibetan Professional Network (GTPN) dinner meeting in the Sontsa Hub saw incredible ideas of collaboration and commitment from 25 Tibetan professionals. Starting from Delhi, I envision growing a strong GTPN community across the global Tibetan diaspora within three years, which will become a resource pool for other programmes. This will channel the current programmes into a more
impact-oriented approach, while instilling an inclusive community feeling and responsibility. I believe the milestone will be reached when we strategise to develop a close connection with all younger generations, and our trust becomes their reliable support system.
