English Language CentreWith access to the area only possible during four months each year, and only then by plane or a four day trek, very few students have the opportunity to meet and converse with the outside world.
The intention is to build an all year round centre with qualified staff and the facilities to teach at least 250 teachers and students per year. This will have a massive effect on the teaching, and learning, of English to primary and middle schoolchildren across Ladakh.
His Holiness Togdan Rinpoche and Tswang Norbu Vivek, President of the International Fellowship of Buddhist Youth have asked that we help to develop the ability of Ladakhi people to converse in, and understand, English.
TFWA Care has generously funded this project which will be completed by the summer of 2013.
