Mother and daughters volunteer with 17000 ft!

Deepika and her two daughters - Maanya and Mithi contribute their vacation time volunteering with 17000 ft Foundation. The spend a period of 11 days in Ladakh. Eager to learn and ready to implement, they spent their first two days like all our other voluntourists getting trained at our Leh office. They are assigned 2 schools and are accompanied by our facilitators.

The group visits MS Phuktse - a tiny school in Kharu block at an altitude of 13,340 ft. The other school is PS Sharnos - again a small school in Kharu block at an altitude of 11,502 ft. Both the schools have 17000 ft libararies.

They conduct Reading Programs in each school, to reinforce the usage of the library and reading habits amongst the children. The children are excited and have a great time with these young voluntourists. They stay at simple home stays and get to exprience the real Ladakh.
