Congratulations to the recipient of the Sir James Woods Award for 2023.
Tenzin Chime, commonly known as Tsomo is being celebrated for their incredible contributions to the community. The award was announced at our AGM and presented by President of the Board of Directors Prasad Rao.
Tsomo wears several hats and is well known and respected in Parkdale. It is her volunteer work with Tibetan seniors and with the Tibetan Women’s Association of Ontario (TWAO) that has earned this honour this year.
As her nominator Passang Tsekey says, through her involvement with the TWAO, Tsomo has designed and delivered social programs and workshops for Tibetan women, seniors, and youth to promote collective care and gender equity in the community. She also supports different campaigns and collective actions to raise awareness about the ongoing transnational struggle against the Chinese colonial occupation of Tibet. Tsomo is a mentor and role model for young women in the community.
From all of us at West Neighbourhood House, congratulations to Tsomo!
