    Surya: The Sun School for Kargyak

    Kargyak is an isolated village situated in the Indian Himalayas in the altitude of 4200 m above sea level and it is one of the last places where the original Tibetan culture still survives. Until recently, there was no school in the village and the children had no other chance but either to leave for distant boarding schools or never to learn to read and write.

    In September 2008 the Surya Civic Association finished construction of the specially designed “passive” school-building which is heated by sun, works fully ecologically and it’s appearance is also in accordance with local structures.
