Title: Sun school in Kargyak

The project "Sun School for Kargyak" aims at providing education for children in the remote village situated 4200m above sea level in Himalayas. As part of this project, a sustainable, low-energy building of the school was designed and built using exclusively only local natural materials. All the construction work was planned with the local environment and ecology in mind and no machinery was used. Only local people and the aid of domestic animals covered all the work. The school was handed over to the villagers of Kargyak in September 2008.
