THE TARIM NETWORK

The Tarim Network is a registered charity based in London, UK. We are a family of passionate individuals creating a platform to unite, inspire and advance the Uyghur and related youth community around the world.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a global community that inspires and cultivates excellence while providing cultural and social enrichment for its members. 

Goals

For 2023 we would love to work as an incubator for community projects our youth would like to lead. We want to create more in-person events, revamp our education tools, and connect our network with more internship and educational opportunities.

our story

On an ordinary day in early 2018, our co-founders found themselves discussing a music project for Uyghurs – a potential way to spread awareness about our people. It was clear from the get-go that they shared an interest in developing an understanding of Uyghur culture and identity while helping Uyghur youth.
 
They also shared the experience of living away from their homeland – one in Great Britain, with a tiny Uyghur community, and the other in Australia, with one of the biggest populations of Uyghurs in the West.

After many conversations spanning days, nights and blurred time zones, a more ambitious task was set: a global Uyghur youth community that was rooted in cultural values yet incorporated the advances of modern society.
 
A platform that encouraged us to be better connected across geographies and promoted a deeper understanding of Uyghur language, religion, history and all the different components that define a culture. 

With the recruitment of a team to help build it and with the advice, support and encouragement of friends and family, the Tarim Network became the implementation of that idea, and we believe everyone has a place and a role within it.

As we expand the reach of the Tarim Network, we hope to include our sibling communities such as Kazakh, Tatar, Uzbek, Kyrgyz, Tajik, and other adjacent groups who we share a homeland with.
