Apr. 1, 2019 -- Tenzin Norbu, the originator of the Tibet Traditional Ethnic Handicrafts Co., Ltd., is a Tibetan philanthropist from an impoverished family. He says,"after a year at Beijing Institute of Technology, I chose to give up my study and returned to Tibet. At the very beginning, I worked at a large state-owned enterprise in Lhasa. By constantly summing up experience, I got the idea to start my own business and begun to set up a company producing ethnic handicrafts".
Located at Dongkar Village of Lhasa's Doilungdeqen District, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, Tibet Traditional Ethnic Handicrafts Co., Ltd. is a public welfare enterprise for the disabled, mainly embarking on designing, producing, processing and selling ethnic handicraft products like Tibetan door curtains, Tibetan-style costume and haversacks, which not only has greatly helped the disabled increasing their income, but also has made positive contributions to the inheritance of traditional ethnic culture.
Tibet Traditional Ethnic Handicrafts Co., Ltd. has been established in 2016. It has provided working posts forlocal disabled people and increased their income. 58 workers have been employed currently by the company, with a monthly income of about 3000 yuan RMB, which has effectively solved disabled people's basic family expense problems. In order to provide a good living environment for workers, the company has built dormitories, canteen, accessible wheelchair access.
