Dharamshala: - A newly-built residential quarter for the staff members of Tibet Corps was inaugurated by Dr. Lobsang Sangay, Sikyong or democratically elected political leader of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) based in Dharamsala, India.
According to CTA Media, Tibet Corps is a novel initiative of the present Kashag to inspire Tibetans to become directly engaged in tangible work to build and strengthen the Tibetan community, its institutions, and the Central Tibetan Administration.
"Around 17 Tibetans, including health and computer professionals and students, have joined the Tibet Corps over the last one year and four months since its inception," Mr Kaydor Aukatsang, the head of Tibet Corps, said at the inauguration ceremony, which was attended by the speaker and standing committee members of the Tibetan Parliament, Kalons and secretaries.
"These Tibet Corps volunteers are serving in the seven departments of the Central Tibetan Administration and health centres in the settlements. Moreover, over 500 professionals and students have made themselves connected with the programme through our website," he said.
"It has given me a unique opportunity to use my expertise in the service of the community and the administration, and made me very much a part of our movement," a Tibet Corps volunteer told Tibet Net.
The group said it needs professionals in agriculture, environment, human rights, media, healthcare, animation and design, art and culture, counseling, education, entrepreneurship, and project planning.
