Other Ways to Help

Social Media Help
Fundraising
Video/Photo Editing

Since we are situated in remote corner of the Himalayas and don't have access to manpower, we are looking for kind souls who can devote a little of their time to help us in social media promotion, fundraising and video photo editing. We can provide detailed information by sharing the idea with online volunteers through Skype call.

We teach a very famous dish called 'kadai paneer' which is made from local cheese along with many ingridients used in it. Charm and surprise your friend by learning with us and preparing back at home.
