Maocairang (Lumo) Li, Sociology, Class of 2014

In the summer of 2011, with a McGill Lawrence Summer Internship Award, Li worked at Pentok Institute in Tibet, a grass roots local initiative led by local women as a service-centered learning organization to empower local women to take charge in improving the lives of their communities. Pentok attempts to help these women through social enterprise and sustainable development.  Li says, “I know from my own experience that only when women are economically independent, can we actually make decisions that will work best for us.”
