Vitsit Of Machik's Family

Machik organization was non-profit organization based in Washington D.C. USA. The co-founder of Machik Dr. Losang Rabgey accompanied by her associates Tenzin Nangkyi have made to TCV School Gopalpur on the evening of April 20, 2016 to give a talk on ‘Machik’ organization and its related works to our students of classes X through XII. The Director and the Principal of the school were away for the management workshop being held at UTCV so, the arrangements for the talk was done by the senior section Headmaster Mr. Molam with the help of school captains and prefects.
Dr. Losang Rabgey gave amazing account of Machik’s foundation and its project works for Tibetan children inside Tibet. She was one of the founding members of Machik organization and the First Tibetan who holds PhD in Gender and Anthropology from the University of London School of Oriental and African studies. Dr. Losang Rabgey and her sister Dr. Tashi Rabgey co-founded Machik, whose mission is to incubate social innovation for Tibet. Dr. Lobsang was recognized by the National Geographic Society as one of the eight emerging Explorers from around the world for her innovative in gender equality and bridging cultural divides. She has been frequent public speaker at the Nobel Forum, Yale University, and Harvard University. Her current research interests include social entrepreneurship, women’s empowerment and conservation in Tibet. Machik organization started functioning with initial funding from her family income a way back 17 years ago. Machik has successfully started a ‘Chungba School’ at Lithang in Kham province – Tibet.
 Machik is seeing its fruition of years’ hard work at Chungba School.  Many of the former students from Chungba School are now found studying different courses at universities in Beijing and the US with academic excellence and some of them even found good placement after their graduation and working for the social cause in Tibet. For the last 17 years, they have been able to successfully start a mother-tongue based rural education program in Kham, scholarship program for girls, and young women in Amdo, and enrichment and mentorship programs for Tibetan youth across the plateau, and Machik’s various ongoing programs that promote capacity building, community development and social entrepreneurships at all levels of Tibetan society.
The strong message to our students from the founder of Machik organization was, an individual can do anything if one believes in oneself. So, have faith in yourself and go for it. The Tibetan Children’s Village Gopalpur extends our sincere ‘Thanks’ to the entire team of Dr. Rabgye la and Nangkyi la for their amazing and good job.
