Brijesh Tiwari, an ITC employee, carried a bag full of stationery all the way to Lingshed(from Leh) to distribute it to the school children there. No wonder why they speak highly of ITC’s distribution system.
He walked on the frozen zanskar river for days to reach Lingshed and he was accompanied by people from various other organizations.

The whole group decided to give something back to the beautiful people of Lingshed Village during the winters when all the roads connecting to the town Leh are shut because of heavy snowfall and the only way to reach the distant villages is by walking on the zanskar river which is partially frozen during January and February.

The solar school is largely funded by people from Austria.
There are various NGO’s which are doing a real good job for the people of Ladakh and a lot of volunteers come from various parts of the world to not only contribute but also to enjoy the beauty of the barren land and high passes.
