The aims of the Tibetan Women’s Association:

  • To raise global awareness of the critical situation inside Tibet, and to exert international pressure for the improvement of human rights for Tibetans living in occupied Tibet.
  • To promote the social, political, and economic equality of Tibetan women, in Tibet and in Tibetan exile communities.
  • To address the drastic human rights abuses committed against Tibetan women in Tibet – including rape, physical violence, and the denial of fundamental reproductive, religious, and political freedoms – and to address other cases of gender-based discrimination in the Tibetan exile communities.
  • To ensure Tibetan women have access to adequate educational information about health care, child care, and family planning.
  • To assist the needy in the Tibetan community through sponsorship programs that help to support economically disadvantaged families, single parents, children, nuns, the handicapped, the sick, and the
    elderly.
  • To preserve and promote Tibetan culture, language, tradition, and the arts through community education, literacy, and publications.
  • To join hands with the women of the world to promote peace and justice for all.
