17000 ft Foundation works with people of remote, high altitude mountainous villages of Ladakh to provide opportunities for growth within these hamlets.
Their programs focus on improving education in Govt. Schools, creating livelihood opportunities, and generating exposure through interactions with the outside world. Sahu’s work spans the entire 65,000 sq. km. of Ladakh, and we aim to impact other similarly remote, inaccessible regions.
