Volunteer Ladakh, operating in the Himalayas of Northern India, is a grassroots non-profit voluntarily run organization, which works to meet the educational and environmental needs of Ladakh. Adventurous volunteers who seek to share their skills and compassion in this unique and remote region are greatly needed. Projects include English language instruction to young Buddhist monks and nuns, teacher training, building school libraries, fundraising and sponsorship to insure that all children have access to education and books, environmental education and sustainable environmental projects, and others. Started in 2013 at the request of several Buddhist monks, Volunteer Ladakh works diligently to match qualified volunteers with appropriate service placement within the magical region of Ladakh.
