Even though Sonam Wangchuk has guided several initiatives, it was first regarded and taken into distinction by the film 3 Idiots in 2009. There's more to this inventor educationist.
Wangchuk is the patron of the Student Educational and Cultural Movement in Ladakh. It was instituted in 1988 by a group of scholars. The entire institute is planned with solar energy and utilizes no fossil fuel for cooking, lighting or heating.
He has additionally proceeded with an all-embracing process of providing fresh water to communities in the upper ends of Ladakh that were in the biggest crisis. His water sources are the nearby rivers.
This man also utilizes his artificial glaciers to preserve fresh water for the people of the community.
Wangchuk once stated, "There have been others before who have served in this arena but faced difficulties such as early melting. To approach these difficulties, we have developed upright ice towers utilizing a simplistic method."
He has installed SECMOL, a non-traditional institution that has brought pedagogical improvement and developed the number of scholars clearing exams.
His contributions might seem minimal, but it has a significant impact on people's lives in the upper ranges of Ladakh. The basic need for individuals is water, food and shelter. He has provided a means for freshwater consumption for those who were in crisis.
