Alana dances. We sponsor her throat-singing.
Thank you for your continuing support of sustainable traditional livelihoods. 100% of donations received are now supporting the construction/establishment of two indigenous cultural centers in the village of Tyungur, the trailhead for pilgrimages to sacred Mt. Belukha. One is a sound-healing center to enable throat-singers to serve the community as well as pilgrims. The other is a more public center where traditional livelihoods such as wool processing and bee-keeping will be taught.
The funds from the recent GlobalGiving matching campaign are being used to procure wood now, so it will be seasoned before construction next summer. Our Altai partner Svetlana Katynova sends you her most heart-felt thanks!
