Empowering women in Himalayan communities to create safe, supportive and inclusive spaces for all through education, leadership training, economic empowerment, and ending violence against women and children.
WHO WE ARE
ACHA began in the living room floor of one of its co-founders in 2011, and currently has a core group of six Tibetan women and five distinguished advisors in the US and India. We are a volunteer-run group, co-founded by service-oriented Tibetan women motivated by a desire to give back to their communities.
WHO WE SERVE
ACHA Himalayan Sisterhood serves immigrant and refugee women and young girls in emerging Himalayan communities in the Bay Area through training and leadership development.
ACHA supports programs for women, girls and seniors in refugee settlements in India and Nepal through small grants. ACHA supports Tibetans inside Tibet by raising funds for Tibetan-led initiatives. This includes partnerships and collaborations with existing organizations that promote education, health, economic development and women’s empowerment in Tibet.
