Arunachal Pradesh tries a break-through in ecotourism

The third and so far newest school opened by FOH's partner Alice Project is located in the Arunachal Pradesh state, in north-eastern India, in the Himalaya region at the border with China. Because of its remoteness, Arunachal Pradesh is one of the more backwards States of all India both in terms of literacy rate and economic development, although a rich natural environment which has the potential to attract investors.

One of the side effects Alice Project hopes to engender is the facilitation of access to the Bodhisatta area, where the school is located, which is several hours away from the nearest town at the moment.

In this context we consider very positively the initiative of the local Adi tribe, to create a community biosphere reserve, the very first of this kind in India, with the aim to boost the local economy, but in full respect of the local environment.
