Volunteer Activity Description
Dharamkot Primary School, Dharamsala, India

The Dharamkot Primary School is where the native children of the region study and receive their education. Since the opening, the school and nearby communities have been mainly affected by monsoon related diseases. Because of climate change, there is dry weather currently in Dharamsala when normally this month would bring snow. This school has around 50 students enrollments each given year coming from up to 35 native families. The immediate surrounding village community is home to an estimated 25 families in this hilly slope.
