ACT6 - Mission 6: Income-Generating Project for Tibetan Craftswomen

Being born in China I felt the responsibility to look for projects supporting Chinese women. Scanning through all active projects I came across this one: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/a-hundred-friends/

"Empowering a woman is empowering a family"
This projects aims to equip local textile craftsmen with the necessary items, who would then be hired to create traditional Tibetan textiles. 90% of Tibetan children do not continue education after primary school. Girls stay at home, herd, get married, stay within the community and repeat the cycle of poverty and poor education. Thus most women do not leave the community to find work.

"This project allows local women to apply their craft skills and talents at higher scale in local and outside market, offering opportunity for local women to earn income for their families and enhance their skills."
This project will empower local women by providing income-generating works. It will be a self sustaining source of income for the entire local community.

People responsible for this project have almost achieved their goal of raising $4000. I donated $10 and I'm happy to have brought this project one step closer towards its goal. In an effort to spread the word of this project I posted the link on my facebook profile, hoping for my friends to also take a look and maybe even take action. I asked my parents to donate as well and sent the link to all of my friends I have on MSN and ICQ and asked them directly to donate. Hopefully we can reach the goal together at the end of next month!

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
