BALTISTAN FUNDAZIOA: ALBERTO IÑURRATEGI & PEDRO IBARRA
Saturday December 5 – 19:00 Euskalduna
Baltistan Fundazioa is an international cooperation NGO that works for the human, integral and endogenous development of the people of the Hushe Valley in Baltistan. Its motto is, ‘Solidarity by way of the mountains.’ The Foundation was born in 2001 as a tribute to the Basque mountaineer Felix Iñurrategi. It contributes to integral development by working to improve the children’s education, to improve the health of the valley, and to encourage the inhabitants’ acquisition of knowledge and skills through training, in order to improve socio-economic development. Moreover, it works in a respectful way with local agents, thus promoting endogenous development.
