The Pollination Project Lisa Shapiro Awards Winners 2017 ~ Dawa Dolker

Dr. Dawa Dolker works as a full-time dentist during the day and dedicates every other spare moment of her life to other animals. Over four years ago Dawa co-founded the Dharmasala Vegan Movement (DVM) which finds homes for other animals in need and encourages people to address their consumption of animal products. 

This powerful activist has been known as the animal rescuer of her village since she was a child so whenever someone spotted a stray animal in distress they would reach out to Dawa for assistance. Over the years she has rescued dogs, cows, cats and mules to bring them back to health. DVM holds seminars, organizes public screenings of documentaries at local restaurants, distributes flyers, and speaks out to schools and universities to raise awareness of veganism. Dawa has made it her mission to speak about animals, health, and environmental factors to the Tibetan community. Her community lovingly refers to Dawa as the First Tibetan vegan who invites strangers to her vegan brunches and helps those new vegans find delicious non-animal food.
