Phuktal Monastery, Zanskar
Location: Lugnak valley
Situated in the very remote Lungnak valley, students of the Phuktal Monastery School come from local farming communities and have little exposure to the outside world. In 2015, the Phuktal River flooded, washing away the entire school campus and all its resources. The monastery has since been rebuilding the institution and is open to help in any form—especially short-term residencies (to teach English) and assistance with the construction of the new school.
