Mechak Center's mission is to promote and cultivate contemporary Tibetan art that has the potential to ignite a renewal of Tibetan culture.
They are a non-profit group working to create a community of Tibetan artists from what is currently, a few isolated individuals making art in different parts of the world. The logical extension of this work will be the building of artistic and cultural bridges to artists working inside Tibet. We believe such an effort will contribute profoundly to Tibetan society's cultural vibrancy and growth.

In 1987 the Tibetan Nuns Project was founded to provide basic humanitarian aide to refugee nuns from Tibet. Food, clothing, housing, and basic medical care were organized. A sponsorship program was set up which allows donors from around the world to contribute to the effort. Now, nuns in five different nunneries -- each from a different Tibetan Buddhist tradition -- receive support through the Project.
