The volunteering program in Ladakh has taken time between 2010 - 2012. Currently, we no longer plan to send volunteers to Ladakhi schools.
Our partner organization, Základní článek Hnutí Brontosaurus Modrý kámen (Blue Stone), was in charge of sending volunteers to Ladakh, India.
History of Blue Stone volunteers in Ladakh
In 2006, Blue Stone sent their first volunteers from the Outer Limits project to Ladakh, India. These were the volunteers who taught at schools and/or helped with the construction and renovation of monasteries in Ladakh, and who originated the idea of the new La Ngonpo educational project. They approached the Multicultural Centre Prague for its implementation.
Volunteering has been defined more precisely over the course of the project. The main task of the volunteers has been to prepare Ladakhi students and teachers for teaching and learning according to the La Ngonpo methodology. Teachers, accustomed to a traditional teaching method and rote memorization, have found it rather unusual.
