When I made the decision earlier this year to see more of the world, I knew exactly where I wanted to go first.I contacted Lha, offering my services as a volunteer English teacher, and arrived in McLeod Ganj on August 20.
I stumbled across Lha on my second day in town. It seemed like a legit gig and best of all there was a distinct lack of bureaucratic nonsense to go through before I could start work. ‘Come tomorrow and teach the elementary level class’, Lobsang from the library told me. ‘No CRB check, no blood test, no ten-minute demonstration class?’ I thought. This was too good to be true.
Another mass clean-up took place in Mcleod Ganj on April 15, organised by Lha as part of our Environmental Protection and Awarness project. There were more than 90 participants including Lha staff members, students and volunteers.
