Here are some of the people involved so far...

Isabel Losada | Isabel Kelly |Migmar Tsering

Isabel Losada has been a dancer, a singer, an actress and worked in TV production before becoming a writer. Her first two books New Habits and The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment examine what happiness is all about. Battersea Park Road, published by Bloomsbury has sold over 100,000 copies and been translated into 11 languages including Japanese.  Her next book For Tibet, With Love examines what difference one individual can make to a seemingly insoluble problem... the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Her exploration has taken her one year so far and this website is one of the results of that journey.  The book will be published by Bloomsbury in June 2004.

Isabel Kelly led Amnesty International's international campaigning on China and Tibet for over ten years.

She researched and reported on human rights in China, Tibet and China's other minority regions for governments, the United Nations, the international media, non-governmental organisations and intergovernmental organisations, businesses and other organisations and Amnesty's international membership. She also worked on projects in Hong Kong and with Tibetan refugee communities in India and Nepal.

In 2001 she devised and wrote the Drapchi Prison Campaign which encouraged members to focus on Tibet's notorious Drapchi Prison as a whole rather than just focussing on individual prisoners. The campaign has been adopted by Amnesty Groups internationally.

Since August 2002 Isabel has been the Director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa of a San Francisco-based corporate Foundation. She is based in Dublin and London.

Migmar Tsering's parents escaped from Tibet on foot in 1959 and Migmar was born in 1976 in a Tibetan refugee settlement. In 1986 he was given a scholarship for the Pestalozzi International Village where he was educated with children from Zambia, Nepal, Thailand, India and the West Bank.

Migmar then studied at the London College of Fashion and worked with Katharine Hamnett before starting the 'Free Tibet' label which sold world-wide with Joe Komodo. Migmar's raises awareness about the Chinese Occupation of Tibet and raises money for Tibet through the fashion industry. He has also climbed mountains for Tibet and helped build schools in Tibet.

In October 2002 he opened 'Tibet Dreams' - his own shop at 50A Earlham Street in London's Covent Garden. Clothes are all made of natural fabrics such as wool and hemp. The Label 'Tibet Dreams' is designed by Migmar and 10% of the profit will be put into the 'Tibet Dreams Fund' which will support a diverse range of Tibetan projects.

The shop will also stock Buddhist statues, jewellery, music, videos, books, and be a centre of information about Buddhist and Tibetan events nationally.
