Cold Ladakh

To give you an idea of how cold it can get in Ladakh in the winter: recently Leh recorded the lowest temperature of the season at minus 22.2 degrees Celsius. That’s bearable if you have central heating, and good insulation, but if you don’t, as you wouldn’t if you lived in Ladakh, then life gets very difficult. You have to wrap up indoors as if you were outdoors! Those that can leave and go south in the winter do.

I want to let you know that I have looked at a lot of volunteer organizations since I did your program and you have (as far as I can tell) one of the best. I really like how much you personally care about each volunteer and each school.
