Title: Solar school for Kargyak
The goal of the project „solar school for Kargyak“ was the build of an energy saving building with a minimum dependency on energy supplies in a remote Himalaya village at a sea-level of 4200 m. The village is three days by foot from the nearest street and the temperatures sink here in winter to -40 °C. The build is done totally ecologically without using any machines. Work is done with locally accessible natural materials and all work is done by using human and animal power. The solution of the project should be that the education of local children is ensured as otherwise the education would be totally inaccessible and they would remain illiterate as most of the other locals.
