Himalayan Youth Voice Project

Himalayan Youth Voices Project at CAAM

The Himalayan (Bhutanese, Nepalese & Tibetan) community in the Bay area and nationally has been growing but there isn’t much visibility or authentic representations of these groups in the media. To counter that scarcity of images by and about the Himalayan community, CAAM started the Himalayan Youth Voices Project in partnership with grassroots organization Sahayeta and funding from the Asian Pacific Fund.
