Sometimes called the ' small Tibet ', Ladakh is situated extremely north of India in the Himalayas.

From 1997, TDF was interested in the fate of the village of Lingshed and 7 nearby hamlets by financing local projects intended to improve the life of the villagers. This people, living about 4.000 m of height, are isolated from the world more than 6 months a year, with winter being endless and frozen.

In 2003, in order to give to children of these 8 villages the possibility of benefiting from a quality education, TDF set up a system of sponsoring and contributed widely to the construction of a boarding school in a suburb of Leh.


Finished in 2013, this boarding school welcomes at the moment about hundred children and teenagers, all attending schools of good level.
