Ladakh - Our Work
Life, learnings and more from there
 

This trip is what changed everything for me. It was my sister's brainwave to travel as volantary teachers in Ladakh. We had the oppourtunity to visit a number of different schools and regions where we worked with children, conversed with monks and painted walls. There is something about the atmosphere, scenery and people living in the mountains that makes them so enduring and engaging. I found a certain slowness in their day to day life, which dispereses a feeling of calm and peace. The locals radiate happy vibes and thier constant dealings with the forces of nature, both beautiful and brutal has made them live in faith and hope. This journey was about giving. Consequently about getting, getting some of the best things that the universe could throw my way!
