Challenge

The Altai people are well known to have a sacred trust to care for the Earth and all her peoples. They are reviving ancient technologies that for millennia have healed their own lands and people, and they are setting up environment and health centers open to anyone in the world.

Solution

1) Fund educational allowances/stipends for healing and environmental stewardship practitioners. 2) Provide construction materials for community centers for environmental and human healing.

Long-Term Impact

Young indigenous Altai men and women are trained and mentored to use their cultural technologies to heal their own people and lands, and then to share this healing with the world
