Central Tibetan Women Association’s Environmental Officer and Research & Media Officer attended a two days Conference on ‘the Relevance and Significance of the Dalai Lama Institution’ organized by the Tibetan Youth Congress and Funded by the Tibet Fund. Several renowned NGOs based in Dharamshala attended the conference as well. We would like to express our gratitude for the invitation and look forward to more intellectual events, and participation resembling this event.

The Tibetan Women’s Association (TWA) was originally founded on March 12, 1959 in Tibet. On this day – known as Women’s Uprising Day – thousands of Tibetan women in Lhasa gathered together to protest against the illegal occupation of Tibet by Communist China.
