Within the same year, she brought 50 solar energy cookers for her village in an effort to prevent pulmonary dysfunctions in women due to burning wood when cooking as well as deforestation.
At the Yakma herd, Dawa takes care of our beloved customers.
Dawa got her BA from Duke University, MHA from UNC Chapel Hill, and MBA from Elon University.
Tsejyid Kar & Tsokar Jyid
As a single mother,Tsokar Jyid (right) used to work long hours at construction sites in order to send her children to school. She never had the time to actually spend it with the children. All of that changed ever since she became trained to be a chandler at Yakma.
Tsejyid Kar (middle) grew up herding yaks. She finds herself the happiest when she is with the animals. Knowing that she is part of a movement that is to sustain the nomadic lifestyle in a modern way, she is more than happy to be a nomadic chandler!
Neither ladies like their pictures taken, so we will have to meet them this way :).
