The main kitchen of SOS TCV Ladakh was built initially in 1980’s. It is currently serving food to more than 1700 children and staff members at the main campus. However, due to the decrease in the number of children and the change in policy of SOS TCV having a separate kitchen at each SOS family home, strength to serve food from this kitchen is now downsized to 300 people during the normal days and 1700 or more during the important days. Likewise, there is a separate kitchen for every home having 20 children and one foster mother.

Please note that this challenge will support the priority needs of Tibetan Children’s Villages at the completion of the challenge, which may vary from the above. We promise to keep you updated with any changes.
