Description:

The project aims to provide sanitation facilities and a safety wall for a local school and a cleaner environment for the community which is being affected by tourist influx and lack of waste management and watershed management systems. The project also wants to create awareness on the Tibetan migrants and their culture.
We have been conducting international volunteer projects in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala for the last 11 years with the purpose of bringing a sustainable model for development of the region in partnership with school management committees, the Tibetan Welfare Office and the local municipality.

The volunteers will work on the renovation of school buildings and walls, wall painting, educational murals, teaching basic English to children. There will be also cleanup activities in the area of the waterfalls, creating awareness among the community and tourists to support responsible tourism, Health and Hygiene awareness and tree planting to avoid landslides. Through their work in the community, the volunteers will promote eco-friendly practices.

Leisure activities: During the project, the volunteers will get the opportunity to learn about the Tibetan culture and the different issues related to the exile of its people and their re-settlement in India. There will be cultural activities, visits to important cultural sites and various Tibetan institutes, meetings with Tibetan monks and the local community.

During the first week of the project, the volunteers will participate in Yoga classes with a professional instructor.

After the end of the second week, the volunteers can take part in an optional 2 to 4-day trekking activity around the mountains of Dharamsala and Triund. The cost of the trekking is from 3,000 to 7,000 Indian Rupees per person.
