Myself lobzang angchuk and i am from leh-ladakh in j&k state. i am doing my BA degree in Humanity from IGNOU. As a volunteer, i work with SLC-IT (snow leopard conservancy India trust).

(editing few on mammals)
And one things, leh is mainly tourist area (editing few on plastic generate)
i also noticed that the fundraiser on Milaap, mostly of them have medical problem/issue but i think its better to prevent before than it cures by educating the youngstar about whole ecosystem that they are depend on each other and need to be balanced and plastic issues which we are suffering now a days.
like year by year now a days, it continuously growing of medical problem/issue in leh itself because of outside product, burning of plastic etc.(add) 10-20 years ago people were not suffering from those diseases like cancer,food poison,pregnancy problem like baby as abnormal etc(add) because of local product,local green vegetables (now a days people didn't collect local vegetables rather than they brought from shop which is transported) i mean mostly of them are shifted to city side where they can earn easier money, i also understand that without money we can't survived now a days in the world but its also important to know about resident of local vegetables, plants and wildlife.
And the one good thing is that now a days, every children went to school for learning something and after (+2) they went out of their proper resident for pursing their studies (if i am talking of my resident itself) because there is only two colleges in leh itself one is Degree college and other one is polytechnic college.
the most worst thing is that the parents got alone in their village and doing their Agro-pastrol activities,year by year, they are getting old and their children went out for studies. (our parents will do their Agro-pastrol activities until they can but after that their children doesn't know the proper Agro-pastrol activity. And also let them know about agro-pastrol activities that at what time cutting trees, ploughing, harvesting and how many times irrigation should be important to field for good production/result(edit)
this fundraiser is for our youth & local communities even we can say for whole earth also.
