Working at the grassroots level

Peshoke and Lopchu are places on the opposite ridge of Kalimpong which are better known for the fine tea that their tea gardens produce rather than the landslide problem in the area.
Thanks to a Hill Social Welfare Society, a vibrant NGO which is working in the region, STH could conduct two Landslide and Earthquake Awareness workshops at the places named above on 13Mar2012; some 220 people all from surrounding tea gardens attended the meetings and I am glad to say that there were many students amongst them.
