Fountain of Learning a.k.a FoL, is an initiative of Avalokitsvara Trust to nurture and educate children in isolated villages of Ladakh. FoL was born in Likir Monastery and the name remains as a metaphor for acts of loving kindness, creativity, connection and compassion and our children’s right to education. Since then, Fountain of Learning Project has joined hands with other isolated and neglected schools in the Ladakh terrain, Indo-China & Indo-Pakistan borders. So far 8 libraries have been set up, but the trust is in the process of raising funds to build more libraries and reach out to a larger base of children in Ladakh.
This short film was made to highlight their work and support them in raising funds to create more libraries.
FoL aspires to organically build an integrated network of like-minded individuals that can extend their support through care, love, time, effort, their skills or monetarily. A few ways in which you can help:
