Machik is a global community dedicated to a brighter future for Tibet. Their mission is to incubate social innovation for Tibet. Machik began with a primary school in the heart of Kham, Eastern Tibet. The Chungba Primary School, opened in 2002, became a runaway success story in its first year of operation by placing first across 53 schools in the county. In the years since then, the Chungba Primary School has become a model for rural Tibetan education across Ganzi prefecture, a region with a population of nearly one million people. Students from the very first class are now graduating from post-secondary schools. With the Chungba Primary School at the heart of their efforts, the work of Machik has expanded year after year, growing organically and incrementally in new directions. Their work is currently organized around these program areas: education, civic engagement, youth leadership, gender empowerment, and social innovation.
