Dow Cause - Gyaan 500 in Dharamkot, Himachal

Postby entramit » Thu Jan 09, 2014 11:11 pm

From a long time I wanted to contribute towards the Dow Causes. Finally I got the chance. Last week of Dec '13, I was in Mcleodganj along with friends. We went to Dharamkot which is a small village 3 kms above Mcleodganj. On the first day we visited a primary school. Idea was to interact with teachers over there about the education, their motivation, their problems, their needs so that we can contribute with the right thing. Teachers over there were welcoming and open to converse. There were total of 26 students in the school. After interacting with teachers, we decided to donate essential stationary items for every kid in the school. Second day, we were armed with our ammunition (stationary items). The smile on the children faces was priceless. For us it was more of a soothing experience. I would like to thank DOW members for bringing such a noble concept. You people are effecting lives of many in those higher ranges. I am proud to be a part of this forum. :) :)

This is amazing. There are many good things about this but for me, the best part is that you actually took out 2 days from your tour schedule to carry out the Causes. Speaks volumes of your commitment to the less fortunate living in those harsh conditions than DoW itself :)

Thanks for the pics and contact details, it will go a long way in helping fellow travelers continue on your initiative.

Please also post a complete travelogue of your Mcleodganj trip! :)
Thank us by thanking yourself.

entramit, you have shown that you are class apart from the rest of us by doing this - While most of us may have the money and the intent to do these, whats special and heart warming is that you took time off during your trip to do this. Thank you for sharing the DoW vision

I am back in normal timing :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Amit you have been always special brother for carrying out these Causes and I know even in Ladakh when you were there, you called me to ask what you can do there and how. I still remember that :) ... Kudos to your spirit of caring and spreading the love in Himalayas. These smiles are priceless and I am sure you can easily co-relate now what it feels like to be part of this. Soon this becomes the best moments of the trip along with what you travel. I am sure this example from you will go a long way in cementing this concept of Responsible Travel from DoW :) :)

Thank YOU again.... looking forward to see you on 19th Jan at DoW Mini Meet and this time we owe you a cake... Eehhh, no we owe you a special reward for carrying this Spirit Out there, we will be awarding you a DoW T-Shirt on the meet, so please do come :)

This is really impressive work.
You have sat an example for the rest, including me. Will surely be lending a hand the next time I'm in the hills.

Thanks Amit for taking this up. It is really inspiring and see how it is turning out viral!
