Dawa, the oldest of nine children, was raised in a small Tibetan farming village.
Her family could not afford to send her to school so she left home at 18 in search of work.
Serving in restaurants and cleaning houses, Dawa struggled to support her immediate family
while contributing to the needs of her extended family. Because of her husband's heart condition,
Dawa worked diligently as the primary breadwinner but desired to be home to raise her daughter.
After being given tools and some beads in 2009, she discovered her enjoyment in making jewellery.
Today, Dawa's jewellery business not only supports her family, but also provides something she never had - an education for her daughter, Bema.
