ACHA’s first Benefit Concert on November 4, 2013 – Joyful Heart Through Precious Tibetan Mantras brings you Bay Area’s Joanna Macy and Jennifer Berezan, and features Dechen Shak-Dagsay from Europe. All of the profits from the concert will go towards supporting women and girl’s education in higher studies and towards health programs in Eastern Tibet. ACHA-Himalayan Sisterhood is a grassroots Tibetan women’s group supported through CHAA’s Sisterhood for Wellness and API Connections programs. The women of ACHA, born and raised in the Himalayan region, are driven by a mission to create safe, supportive and inclusive spaces for women to empower each other. Through partnerships with local nonprofits, ACHA promotes health and wellness, and transition into the United States by organizing acculturation workshops in the Bay Area for immigrant and refugee women from the Himalayan region. In the Himalayan regions, ACHA supports existing women-led initiatives that promote women and girls’ education, health and leadership. The concert will begin at 7 pm at Rudramandir, 830 Bancroft (on 6th St.) in Berkeley. Doors open at 6 pm. Delicious Tibetan food available for sale.
