Mission: Help the children in Ladakh gain education.

LOOKING AT LADAKH

A land of disputes? Remote

Does it belong to India? Pakistan? China? Who would consider investing in Ladakh? The Government of Ladakh? Is it safe to invest here?

For the interest of the people… … which of these countries would develop Ladakh ?

Leh is linked by a complex network of mountain trails to most of the valleys, villages and high pastures. One airport in Leh, its capital.

Ladakhis live scattered throughout the Himalayan mountain ranges.

Mostly small-scale farmers. Work on short growing seasons of a few months every year. Land irrigated by water from the ice and snow of the mountains. They also rear yak, dzos (yak-cow cross breed), cows, sheep and goats. What do they sustain on?
