LADAKH 2022 - CHARITY CHALLENGE
Gulf for Good challengers will take part in an amazing trek through the Markha Valley in Ladakh, northern India. They will journey through the Hemis National Park, home of the elusive snow leopard, passing through beautiful villages tucked in the deep valley surrounded by towering mountains.
This challenge will support Tibetan Children's Village, Ladakh to install 23 individual kitchens in family homes as well as upgrading the village’s central kitchen, study and dining area. At present children in the village cook on the floor and study on their beds. This project will benefit more than 1,550 students currently under the charity’s care, 500 students under our further study programme and 300 senior citizens, in addition to providing better resources to deal with the severe winter weather conditions.
Tibetan Children's Villages or TCV is an integrated community in exile for the care and education of orphans, destitute and refugee children from Tibet. Formally registered in 1972, Tibetan Childrens Villages, is a registered, non-profit charitable organisation with its main facility based at Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh, North India. Across its Indian network, TCV cares for more than 12,000 children. Tibetan SOS Children’s Village Ladakh looks after 1861 orphan and destitute Tibetan and local Ladakhi children who come from all parts of Ladakh.
Each participant is tasked with raising a minimum of AED5,000 (USD1,360) to support this project and, together, change the lives of these children and families.
This challenge is held in association with local not-for-profit Gulf for Good, whose purpose is to change the lives of underprivileged children around the world.
