I am an Ex-PMRD Fellow
, a resident of Padum
, largest town of Zanskar
Valley, A himalyan remote region located in south of Leh Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir state. The place is far off from mainstream and needs special initiative to bring sustainable earning opportunities to the youth.
Towards this end, we have been working to establish an Eco-venture called project Ramzani
. The idea is to create houses and tourist locations using local, eco-friendly material. We were to build a workshop and demonstration building using which we can train the people of Zanskar. Here are some photos of project work:
For funds, I had applied for a Loan from J &K Development Finance Corporation Ltd. The project is approved. The copy of the EoI is attached below:
I started the construction work after getting the approval. However, you all know the situation in J&K since last few months. Even after the approval and sanctions, the money is not reaching me as the offices are not functioning. Thus I am now put into a situation where I owe a large sum of money (~ INR 12,00000 ) to masons, workers, experts etc. I have arranged for around INR 700000 and need help with the rest.
So I request all of you to kindly support me and help me out.
Please contribute as a loan I will return you money as soon as the situation in Kashmir is back to Normal and Offices starts re-functioning, by then I will receive funds from J &K Development Finance Corporation Ltd and an equal Amount will be deposited back into your respective Accounts.
