Impact Miyar - Empowering the people of Miyar Valley
About the Cause
Impact Miyar is an initiative to empower the people of the Miyar Valley in the Himalayan region of Lahaul and Spiti by promoting ecotourism and sustainable livelihood in the valley. Miyar, a forgotten Shangri-La, has a wealth of possibilities for Trekking, Alpine Rock Climbing and Mountaineering all in one place. Truly, "A Mountain Paradise in the Indian Himalayas." !
The challenges faced by the Miyaris are:
- Unskilled youth unable to find jobs in the tourism industry abandon their homes for other employment prospects.
- Valley cut off from outside World for almost 8 months in a year without proper access to communication.

Ask - 3.5 lakhs
- Enable connectivity in the valley even during the long winters by creating a 'Youth Connect Center"
with access to computers, internet, books and entertainment. This will eventually become an information
and Cultural hub for both the locals and tourists visiting Miyar.
