Voulnteer Oppertunities in the Indian Himalayas
The local co-ordinator - Ankit Sood
Ankit, previously a lecturer of Sustiable Tourism in the local Government Univesity, is now working as a environmental and eco-tourism consultant in the development of a new national park as well as running an ecotourism initiative, (www.sunshineadventure.com) leading treks in the Himalayas particularly the Great Himalayan National Park.
After co-founding the project, he has agreed to remain the local co-ordinator for the project for future years as well. He has many ideas for how the project could expand in future years . Therefore he will assist new groups/indiviuals in setting up the project each year with his knowledge, experience and ideas. I have also mentioned other people throughout the portfolio who might be able to offer support and advice for the project (the more people who know about it and help out the better), although nobody else other than Ankit and the group have authority in the way the project is conducted as a whole. Although obviously headmasters of schools etc will want a say in how the project is conducted in their particular institution.
