In memory of our prestigious colleague and throught his solidar association BE VOLUNTARY (http://bevoluntary.org/) we propose to contribute financially to this association for a very specific objective: the construction of a museum on the Ladakhi trekking route. It will be called the "Gérard Gissinger Museum" and will be, in addition to a showcase for the association and a relay (refuge) for trekkers, an information centre on the preservation of the snow leopard, a library a solidarity store in partnership with the inhabitants of the Marka Valley.
The location of this museum has been already choosen and an intial money advance have been done to reserve the place.
Now we have to find the sufficient financial support to build the museum and to install some active people.
What will the money collected be used for?
This money will explicitly be used to build the museum in order first of all to honour the memory of Gérard Gissinger but well beyond and in respect of his philosophy, to inform about the association and its activity, to inform about the snow leopard (a magnificent animal whose species must be preserved), to allow hikers to stay and share friendly moments, and finally and above all to set up a solidarity business of local products and drinking water.
