NGO MOST helps the families who need its assistance the most to survive the uneasy conditions of the altitudes higher than 4,500m. We have been supporting since 2011
over 50 very poor nomad families from villages in the region of Chanthang at the Tibetan border. Every year we donate families a certain amount of goats to enable them to continue their traditional ways of living. Donated goats make a whole herd of 750 goats now (2/2017).
In the area near the Tibetan border Changthang nomadic families live a traditional way of life like they did earlier at home in Tibet. They are an important element of Tibetan culture even today, their population in the area is over 1 500. The nomads take care of goats and sheep in particular. Animals produce milk, butter, a bit of wool and pashmina. These products are sufficient to live on during summer and in winter the families have to buy food for the goats. They obtain money by selling wool rugs and woven or knitted products. However, if they lose the greater part of a herd of goats, they cease to be self-sufficient and cannot keep up on the plains. The poorest of them are forced to sell the remaining herd and must relocate to exile villages in central Ladakh, where they try to find a job. It is very difficult; many of them could not go to school and are only able to look after the cattle.
Our long-term goal is to get money to buy goats for the poorest families, in order to become independent and to preserve thein livelihood on the plains.
The nomads come from villages Sumdho and Henley.
