17000 ft Foundation
17000 ft Foundation is an NGO that helps schools in the remote areas of Leh and Kargil district to set up libraries and provide students with better quality education. This organisation principally aims at improving English vocabulary of these children. Volunteers sort and set up the library and engage all the children in reading activities. They also teach art and craft to the children. Other projects initiated by 17000 ft Foundation include ‘Playground Setup’ that awarded a school a fully functional playground to acknowledge the good practices of the school. The volunteers prepare the ground for various activities, where children showcase their skills. 17000 ft foundation aims at creating a world where geography and distances offer no barriers to opportunity and growth.
