Lamdon Social Welfare Society:
The society is the foundation and the guardian of the school.
It came into being, when in the late 1960s, a group of socially enlightened youth determined to eradicate social evils of the society, and work towards enriching the cultural heritage, and making education accessible to all. The society came into being in 1970 and immediately began spreading awareness through lectures, street plays, songs and dances. The performance and songs by the cultural troop headed by Shri Morup Namgyal blanketed Ladakh and was able to hit the bull’s eye. Within few years, polyandry and dowry were eradicated from the soil of Ladakh. An amount of Rs. 29,000 were raised through the stage shows which were utilized to set up Lamdon School in 1973 with just 29 students. The school strives to give preference to the kids from poor and remote areas. It has grown to be one of the most reputed educational institutions of Ladakh. For its incessant work towards education, Department of Women and Children Development, Ministry of HRD, GoI, conferred prestigious ‘Child Welfare Award’ to the society. In 2002, Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre awarded ‘Acharya Buddha Rakkhita Humanitarian Award” to the school. For its outstanding service to the humankind, Ladakh Buddhist Association conferred ‘Bharat Ratna Dr. Ambedkar Award’ to the society in 2009.
To this day, the society works untiringly, rendering its services through volunteering, social campaigns, medical camps, welfare activities and charity.
