The association “Education for Adults in Ladakh — Himalaya” was set up in January 2017. The association meets all requirements for exemption from taxes according to the provisions of Article 78 paragraph 1 lit. f StG. and Article 56 lit. g DBG. The association, with its seat in Schiers, will therefore be taken up in the Cantonal list concerning tax deductibility of voluntary donations.
Promise of co-operation
The consultant of “Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Leh” responsible, Sonam Dorje, has, on request of the association, guaranteed future co-operation. The letter is available in the Documents section.
Preparations for the next trip are going full speed ahead and Trudi Vetsch is greatly looking forward to the four-week trip in June. A report will follow after her return.
Volunteer work in July
A student from the Chur area will be carrying out volunteer work in the village of Yulchung this year. Her mission is a voluntary social commitment. This will above all concern the relief of the strain on the families and on the village school.
