Meet Jampa

Born in a small village in the Tibetan plateau, Jampa is a poet and rising community leader. The only person from her village to attend a university, she has improved the lives of hundreds through small solar and literacy development projects. Jampa is committed to giving voice to the invisible women of Tibet and empowering young girls to pursue their dreams.


Her Life Vision

"I see myself as a trailblazer of positive changes in my community. I want to be an effective change maker and exemplary social worker...I want to establish an organization that provides a vibrant and diverse residential learning community where girls are encouraged to take part and fulfill their potentials."

-From Jampa's post "I enumerate my visions." Read more about her life and vision »

Her Work

"I empower girls and prove that education makes a difference by doing small-scale development projects. So far, I have implemented a Solar Panel Project (30 solar panels to 30 households); a Flash Lighter Project which benefited 54 families; a Second-hand Clothes Project which benefited 160 people and a Book Project that benefited 342 students and 18 teachers...The purpose of these projects is to have parents send more girls to school because they could see girls also can do so much."

-From Jampa's post "Take a glance at my life." Read more about her work »

Her Digital Empowerment Journey

“In most Asian Countries, women are considered inferior to men and they are socially undermined in many ways...They have always been the kind of women that hide their faces, they have been so afraid to tell the world what they have to say...Web 2.0 reminds us that it is time to let it show, it is time to let the world know what we have been bearing so long."

-From Jampa's post "Another door opens to us." Read more about her digital empowerment journey »

What has been the most challenging issue in your empowerment?

Issues of Tibetan women

Hello Jampa,

Some of the issues Tibetan women have to face daily in their lives are -

1) Problems of women living in exile.
2) Reproductive Rights (Forced Sterlizations and coercive
birth control policies).
3) Unequal status of women (women being treated as inferior to men)
Tibetan women are discriminated in the field of education,
employment, and health.
4) Education and job opportunities not being available to tibetian
women as per expectations.
5) Tibetan women under Chinese military domination and exploitation
(massive human rights violations)
6) Victims of occupation, arbitrary arrest, torture, violation of
freedom of speech and assembly, restrictions on freedom of religion,
and on freedom of travel.
7) They are arbitrarily arrested, detained and tortured in custody for
peaceful expression of their political beliefs.
8) They suffer rape and sexual violence while in police custody which
sometimes results in deaths.
9) Tibet is an occupied country; the negative consequences of this -
how to handle?

You need to have a comprehensive plan of action to handle all such types
of issues.

Which way you plan to handle them?

Best Regards,
Sanjay R.Dixit,

Félicitation à Jampa

Nous félicitons d’abord Jampa pour avoir eu la chance de faire l’université parmi tant de personnes.
Ce qui m’intéresse d’avantage en est que, parmi vos projets, vous avez fait un projet de livre qui a bénéficié de 342 élèves et 18 enseignants. Si je comprends bien, vous lutter contre l’analphabétisme. C’est une bonne chose. Nous aussi nous n’avons pas eu la chance de fouler les pieds à l’école mais, notre souhait et d’y aller.
Vous dites que le poste est :en savoir plus sur son autonomisation numérique voyage. alors, quel est la procédure?

As young woman in Tibet what have been some of your challenges and from whom came those challenges and how hard have they been to overcome.

Do you find that the elder women are supportive of what you are doing or are they in some way hindering the progress?
