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:

  1. Unskilled youth unable to find jobs in the tourism industry abandon their homes for other employment prospects.
  2. Valley cut off from outside World for almost 8 months in a year without proper access to communication.
Funds and Appeal
  1. Sponsor the Mountaineering training (Basic & Advance Courses) of 10 young Miyaris at ABVIMAS, the training institute in Manali. They will then undergo an apprenticeship which will equip them to work in the Trekking/ Adventure Industry. This will create an avenue for sustained livelihood right in their homeland.
    Ask - 3.5 lakhs
  2. 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.
    Ask - 2.5 lakhs

We also plan to support a 1 week social Entrepreneurship week in Miyar Valley in the first week of July, in partnership with a social impact fund. Those interested in participating can write to jay.ahya@letsventure.com

This initiative is being delivered by White Magic Foundation.

White Magic Foundation is a non-profit operated by White Magic Adventure, rated among the "10 Top Adventure Travel operators" by Outlook Traveller. They specialise in high altitude treks and mountaineering trips in the Himalaya.
