Our Work

Past Work

Building clinics and schools, conducting small business training, hosting conferences and symposia to support culture and development, assisting hundreds of families through emergency relief, and funding research on Tibetan grasslands—these are just a few of the many projects we’ve supported since 1993. Though our organizational priorities have changed and continue to grow as we evolve as an organization, our work and vision remain steadfast. Below, read more about some of our past projects.
