Svetlana doing ceremony on the land
Tomorrow, you will have a chance to make your donation to revive the Altai culture BIGGER!
Our Altai partner, Svetlana Katynova has persuaded the local government to make land available for a traditional Altai village so that Altai kids living in the city can experience their culture, which is otherwise lost to them. Thirty volunteers are ready to built the village and live in it, reviving hope for Altai culture for 25,000 ethnic Altai people in the city of Gorno-Altaisk.
First, however, the land must be surveyed and registered, a water tower must be built, and the mountainous access road must be made passable.
Check your e-mail tomorrow morning for the details on how to make a BIG difference.
