2017/05: The project is taking shape

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.

Plea­sant anticipation
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.
