One of the reasons we are investing our energy in Lena, is that we see it as a mean to make a little difference to the lives of the marginalized nomadic communities, whose main source of livelihood is their pashmina goats. In the modern times where technology is growing exponentially, where we are able to surround our lives with luxuries and comfort, it is not easy to see that the entire lives of these nomads still revolves around their goats and yaks in the very harsh climatic condition, yet they get back very little. Not that we are demeaning their ways of life, infact during our recent trip to Changthang, while interacting with them, we failed to find them put forth any complain regarding their daily lives. We were overwhelmed by their heartwarming hospitality.Yet there is no denying that their children need the best of modern education so that they could keep up with the exponentially growing modern methods to bring back good income for what they put forth in the extremes of nature. And to make sure they are not exploited by outsiders. In this connection, We would definitely keep you connected to the Changpas (the pashmina growers) through your buy by sharing 5% of our profit in nomad’s children education.
