And one woman. Leading the way.
The local "panch" (mayor) in Tar is Tsering Dolkar - a seven-year member of HEALTH Inc and a valuable asset to many of our projects. One of the very few women panches in Ladakh. When the village had a once-in-a-lifetime visit from the Rinpoche, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, the entire region naturally turned to her to organise and manage the visit.
Her gift of leadership has helped the village in this year's Seeds project, in bringing electricity and telephone connections to the village, in building a Women's Centre and showing there is so much more than school learning to village wisdom.
Winter Camp? Of course I ask her to teach at winter camps.
