The Efterskole in the land of
prayer mills...

In 2012, Efterskole Welfare Society opened its doors in the village of Phyang, in Ladakh, the “Land of High Passes”, “Land of Lamas” and the "land of prayer mills".

 

After nine long years of developing, planning, obtaining permits and actual construction, the dream became a reality. This was a heart journey for Lissi Braae, the brainchild of the project. After many years visiting Ladakh, Lissi saw how difficult it was for young poor girls from remote villages to reach the academic standards necessary for passing their 10th level exams. As a result of this need, Lissi worked diligently soliciting support from outside India to make this school a reality.

 

In 2012, twenty girls from very poor families were chosen to live and study at the school for a year. In the first eight months, 18 of those students passed their exams. With the support of a dedicated staff and principal, the school continues to have very high success rates and academic progress.

 

 

You Can Make A Difference!

 

We need your support in order to expand the school to serve a greater population of young underprivileged girls from remote regions in the Himalayas. Presently, we have to unwillingly send girls away in tears, as there is no space for them. The new building will allow us to double our capacity. Our goal is to increase our school to serve at least 50 students at a time. An estimate for this construction will cost approximately 50 lacs.
