THE EDUCATIONAL PROJECT AND THE SOLAR-SCHOOL IN LINGSHED

The FRIENDS OF LINGSHED are an Austrian team which has been committed to the region on a voluntary basis since 1994. The goal of the society is to provide sustainable long-time aid by means of educational programmes. Lingshed is 4000 m above sea level and can only be reached by a several-day trek over high mountain passes (5000 m above sea level). It is one of the most remote parts of Ladakh (northern India). Together with the local population the FRIENDS OF LINGSHED built a solar-heated school in the year 2000, financed by donations. The construction of the school set the foundation in Lingshed for the development of a sizeable educational centre.



The FRIENDS OF LINGSHED finance different educational projects. Donations are used for sponsorship for school children and students, for winter time education (it is a kind of "extra tuition" during school holidays between december and february in Lingshed and the surrounding villages), for environmental education and for school books and educational materials suitable for children.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

We are very happy that an Austrian organization is noticed in Australia... Thank you for your donations. You can be sure that every cent helps directly as FRIENDS OF LINGSHED enable children and young people from Lingshed and from other remote villages in Ladakh to receive a good school education.
