“Caught in Nepal: Photographs by Tibetan Refugees”

Skip your morning latte and donate a few bucks to this project, which gave cameras to Tibetans trapped in Nepal so that they could document their lives. Your donation will help publish the book.

Tibetans have no legal status in Nepal. They are not allowed to own property or their own businesses and therefore lack the foundation to improve their opportunities. They are not allowed to register the births or marriages that take place within their families. Their children are not allowed to attend Nepali schools…Nepal is a dead end from which the refugees see no escape.

 

I have no affiliation with this book or the author, I just came across this online and wanted to share it with others.  Thank you.
