Support the WebWalker works!

(And the works of his friends too. )

WebWalker is me James Walker. I have been a web developer since the web began, and have been building / teaching / advising Web in the Tibetan exile community in India since 2001. Here is more about me, and here are some things i am working on currently.

Through supporting me, you support those things, which are all for Tibet and for dharma. If you would like to help, please contact me here.

Thank you.

Current needs

  • Portable a/c unit for my kuti (hut) at Khao Tham Meditation Center.
    While i can live and meditate there in the heat and humidity just fine, i have found that my Web work is severely limited — the brain needs cool! The plan is to use the A/C onlly when i am working.
    Estimated cost: US$250
  • Water heater for room at McLeod Ganj.
    The water heater (called “geyser” in India) finally gave up completely in November of 2018. Luckily nobody was staying in the room over the winter, and cold showers aren’t too bad other times of year. But … Winter is coming …
    Estimated cost for unit and installation: US$200

Other good people deserving of support:

Lobsang Wangyal is a writer, social activist, photojournalist, and events producer, also based in McLeod Ganj, India. Here is a page of his works, and here is his Wikipedia page. Our next big project we want to do together is an online contemporary Tibetan dictionary, to live at his website
All Lobsang’s works are for Tibet and for dharma. At GoGetFunding you can support his general works, and his work enabling Indian passport for Tibetans.
Khao Tham Insight Meditation Center, is a place i practice and stay on Koh Phangan, Thailand. Its mission is to bring the dharma to interested Westerners.
Here is the Khao Tham website, and here is its support page
Some Tibetan individuals in Tibet and in McLeod Ganj are doing good and selfless work in their communities, and could use some help to support themselves and their families.
If you would like to help, please contact me here and i can put you in touch with a friend here who is working to find ongoing funds for them.

our song

Ain’t gonna let injustice turn me around
I’m gonna keep on walkin’
Gonna keep on talkin’
Marchin’ up to freedom’s land
We ain’t gonna let nobody turn us around
