Dr. Losang Rabgey holds a PhD in gender and anthropology from the University of London School of Oriental and African Studies where she was the first Tibetan to become a Commonwealth Scholar. Losang and her sister co-founded Machik, whose mission is to seed social innovation in Tibet.
Machik works to seed innovation in Tibet. It started by building a community-based education project from the ground up in one rural Tibetan township. At the heart of the work are a number of direct interventions: building an award-winning school, bringing clean energy and safe drinking water, establishing a library and an organic greenhouse, repairing roads and rebuilding homes, and facilitating healthcare missions.
