Dharamshala holds a very significant position as the second (winter) capital of Himachal Pradesh. It
is also the abode of the Tibetan spiritual leader, the 14th Dalai Lama, and the capital of the Tibetan
government-in-exile, with a considerable Tibetan settlement. It is one of the most beautiful, scenic
places in the world, set in the backdrop of the snow-clad peaks of Dhauladhar Mountains, where
heaven meets earth.
The Camp
To have a safe environment in the school, you will help to construct a safety wall where the land is
sloping, so the children can play without fear of danger. You will work on the renovation of
classroom walls, to give children a colourful learning atmosphere. You can also bring basic
education to the local schoolchildren with creative methods. Due to the influx of tourists, there is a
huge amount of waste generation, which is harmful to the environment. Create awareness for the
protection of the environment and solid waste management in the local community. You will visit
various Tibetan cultural Institutes and Tibetan Children’s Village to learn about the Tibetan
migrants. A 2/3/4-day trek around the mountains of Dharamshala and Triund, with spectacular
views is optional.

Leisure activities:
Tibet has maintained a unique culture, religion and language for centuries. After the Chinese
invasion in 1950, the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s political and religious leader sought and was given asylum
in India, along with thousands of Tibetan refugees. Today, there is a thriving settlement in
Dharamshala, which is called Tibet-in-exile.
To learn about Tibetan culture and religion, there are many places of interest at Dharamshala.
Tsuglagkhang, Mcleodganj the residence of the Dalai Lama is a must-visit, as are the Tibet
Museum, Dalai Lama temple, Tibetan Parliament House, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives,
War Memorial and Kangra Art Museum. The Tibetan Children’s Village, a charitable organisation,
caters to children who are in the greatest need among the refugees. For the last 5 decades, it has
run solely on the generosity of its well-wishers.
At Gyuto and Namgyal Monasteries, you can interact with the Tibetan monks and get valuable
insights into the peace-loving Buddhist philosophy. If you are in the right place at the right time,
you could even be fortunate enough to meet His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama himself. Palampur,
the Tea Capital of North India is famous for its beautiful tea gardens, which are a natural scenic
sight. Tea lovers can pick up some handcrafted, fresh mountain teas here. Some of the teas
available are Black Teas, White Teas, Oolong Teas, Green Teas and Tisanes.

Over the years, FSL-India has developed a strong network of local partners and local volunteers in the regions where we conduct our camps. In every work camp, FSL-India works in partnership with local NGOs – since they are able to identify the problems and needs of the locality. This helps us achieve sustainability and a larger impact in the work that we do. Partnering with a local NGO also helps in reaching out to the local community. In addition, FSL-India works in various fields in cooperation with Archaeological Survey of India, Ministry of Women and Child Welfare, Ministry of Health, Education, Forest and Wildlife Departments and Local Self-governance Bodies
