On International Day, UN promotes cooperative solutions for social inclusion

Decent work is a fundamental mechanism for inclusion and social justice, Mr. Ryder said, noting that decent work is embedded in the SDGs. 

“It means being particularly attentive to the situation of working women and men who are at risk of exclusion and poverty, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples, migrants and refugees,” he said, highlighting this year's theme for the Day, which is to ensure that no one is left behind.

Namgyal Choephel, Executive Director, Penpa Sangpo, General Secretary and volunteer staffs of Social Action Movement would like to thank all the sponsors and supporters for the wonderful year 2018 and wishing you a very happy year 2019.


Since 2012, SAM organizes Trunkar Feast to the senior Citizens dwelling at Old & Aged Homes in the month of July in coincidence with HH Dalai Lama birthday. We are thankful to the staffs of Sera Je Secondary School and Class of 90's CST Bylakuppe for their support and helping hand. 

As a part of the Social Assistance, SAM continues looking after the wards under their care. Under Distance Aged-old Adoption Program (DAAP), the monthly stipends of Rs. 1000 (One thousand Indian Rupee) were given to seniors who were in need of social assistance. This program will continue with the help of sponsors around the world.

The sad part of 2018 was that the three wards namely, Mrs. Kalsang Dolma, Mr. Aku Dorjee, and Mrs. Dawa Dolma left this world for heavenly bodies. May they have a swift rebirth. Now SAM is bringing in new beneficiaries to substitute them and save some souls. The respective benefactors are notified and waiting for their approval. 

Looking back in the past, it has been seven long years these dependents are extended help by SAM – solely from all of you. Taking this rare opportunity SAM wishes all the sponsors, supporters and volunteers a Big Thank You from all of us for your consistency and continuation.
