Dear friends and family,
After saying our goodbyes to our homestay families in Taar village, hiking back down to the road, driving along the Indus River back to Leh, and enjoying a day of rest and wandering around town, we have just arrived at or next destination, SECMOL. This is an alternative educational institution for Ladakhi youth, largely run by its own students, which focuses heavily on service and developing life skills. We will be spending our days working around the campus in collaboration with the SECMOL students, offering English conversation practice, and investigating the concept of Learning Service.
With deep gratitude,
