Description 

This project aims to improve the educational attainment levels of Tibetan youth living in Nepal and India to help them access post-secondary education and improve gainful employment opportunities. Project activities include: (1) technical training, mentoring and pilot programs as well as small grants and scholarships targeting girls; and (2) to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic through a mixture of technical support, coaching, provision of supplies and improved internet connection.
