Thanks to you, the Ladakhi NGO Shatsa has set up the first community library in Leh, with over 2,000 new books! Your donations also fund two librarians and run programmes, including a mobile library for nomadic children and workshops for parents on the importance of reading for their children.

“One of the big challenges is that after school, many of the kids don’t have a reading environment at home, as parents are either busy with work or just adhere to the school curriculum and homework given by teachers. In some cases, parents are not literate and cannot support their children.”

Tenzin Panten, Shatsa project lead

Through your support, Tibetan children in Ladakh now have access to a wide variety of reading materials in English and Tibetan, improving their confidence in reading while preserving their language and culture.
