-- Quote of the Day --
“…I began organizing trekking expeditions and started raising money for different philanthropy and after a few years of doing this, I made a connection who told me about his home village – Basa. It is a little village in a remote area in the Himalayas. They had a little school there and they wanted to add the 4th and 5th grade – so we raised funds for them. And then we wanted to invite some of the trekker donors to visit the village. That is how the Bassa Village Project started. …The way we agreed to develop the village; we would only respond to requests from the village, we would provide capital to provide materials and experts but the villagers had to provide the labor and they would own and run the project …the school, the hydroelectric system, etc. Our goal to have as little impact as possible; not to destroy the local culture.”
Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on … titled: Basa Village Project
