“It was very fortunate to have some very energetic and committed Tibetan students that had heard about the planting project of the Tibetan Children Village (TCV) in Leh Ladakh, inspired by the Dalai Lama during his last visit to Ladakh. The Dalai Lama wanted to see more green in the area, as the Dalai Lama’s commitment to the environment is well known.”
Last month, our founder, Tenzin Ösel Hita, visited our Global Tree Initiative (GTI) communities in New Zealand and in Australia, where he led Habit Alignment Key (HAK) retreats.
