We have just received a brochure for accessible holidays in Leh, Ladakh. This is a holiday with a difference. Planned and advertised with the needs of people with disabilities in mind there is a special bonus…see what the brochure says:
“Make a difference
Himalaya on Wheels has been set up by Travel Another India with expertise
provided by People’s Action Group on Inclusion and Rights (PAGIR) — a
group of people with disabilities and their families.
The president of PAGIR, Mr Mohammed Iqbal, was recently conferred the
‘Real Heroes’ Award by CNN-IBN.
Profits from Himalaya on Wheels flow back to PAGIR to help them in their work. At the PAGIR shop, Jungwa Shrungskyob, you can buy handicraft made from waste. The project contributes to a cleaner Ladakh and the economic independence of people with disabilities.
So go ahead, indulge! To find out more,
firstname.lastname@example.org or call at +91 9940 559 513”
MESH works with PAGIR and I visited Leh in 2010 it is a wonderful place and now available to you even if you are in a wheel chair!
