A quick visit to Ladakh : October 16th – 23rd 2011 A new girl was enrolled in the new Lamdon School in Khaltse, which opened last year. I went to visit her family, and the villagers were really happy...

A recent edition of the BBC’s The Human Planet showed the difficult and dangerous 6 day journey two of the children had to take to get to the school. Whilst the children featured were not sponsored by Himalayan Children, those who are have similarly arduous journeys to the school. The children in the film are boarding pupils at Lamdon School.
In May 2011, Gail again visited Ladakh, seeing lots of friends and students – she is becoming a well known face in the school and the local villages!
She interviewed the Principal of the school and shot the video below.
