The Students' Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL) was founded in 1988 by a group of young Ladakhis to reform the educational system in Ladakh. Today, our activities are extremely varied and numerous. We organize activities for Ladakhi youth, run a campus for students going to school or college in Leh, develop solar energy projects, and much more.

Over the years, students and teachers at the SECMOL School Campus have been working on a variety of innovative projects such as solar-heated mud buildings that need no heating even in -25°C, low cost greenhouses that enable large scale farming even in Ladakhi winters, underground mud pipes that are one tenth the cost of the cheapest water pipes, solar rickshaws, solar heated bio-gas plant and rocket stoves that cook and heat with a fraction of the wood needed by other stoves and even bake bread with the exhaust heat… just to name a few.
