Loden’s Support a Training for a Nomadic Youth GroupPosted on: December 15th, 2015
As part of ‘Student Empowerment through Entrepreneurship Development’ (SEED) programme, Loden contributes a grant of Nu. 200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Only) supporting group of 25 out-of-school youth from Lingzhi Drungkhag. The project starts with training on the basic concepts of entrepreneurship with which they are expected to take up entrepreneurial ventures in the Drungkhag.
Dasho Drungpa of Lingzhi, Mr Dorji Gyeltshen in his proposal said, “Lingzhi Drungkhag is a remote place and it doesn’t have any economic activity. However starting April end till November each year thousands of tourists ply through the place till Laya in Gasa. There are lot of unemployed youths in Lingzhi who do nothing other than the cordycep collections”. He added, “this expense will go a long way in helping the nomadic people residing in the border area with some activities to earn some extra income for themselves”.
The Loden Foundation is pleased to engage in this initiative as we are catering to people from the remotest parts of the country which is our core objective. We will continue to support more such initiatives in the near future helping to materilize the national goal of equitable socio economic development.
