Support to the Government Organizations


LEDeG has 35 full-time employees who tend to the general administration and implementation of various projects. In turn, employees report to a Working Committee of eight members through an Executive Director. The Working Committee fulfills the managerial responsibility of LEDeG’s projects. The Working Committee is elected by a General Body comprising of 100 members. Each year, the organisation has several national and international volunteers who get involved in various ongoing projects in Leh satisfying the organisations need for staff. The head office of LEDeG is in Karzoo, Leh and has branches in Kargil and Zanskar that take care of the projects in those regions.


The head-office has a well equipped library, an exhibition hall, conference hall and a craft shop at the Karzoo Centre in Leh. LEDeG also has a demonstration campus (where all of its projects are put into operation), approximately two kilometres from the head office. The demonstration campus has a fully equipped workshop, store-house, agriculture-testing centre and a plantation of apricot trees and a greenhouse where vegetables are grown in the summer, a solar passive Trombe-technology hostel and guest house for trainees and guests. It relies only on solar energy for electricity and water heating. The group also runs a Rural Building Centre near Choglamsar, on the outskirts of Leh.
