While BRO teams are striving to complete the excavation and tunnelling works which will allow (in 2015 ?) to avoid the dangerous road over Rohtang pass and create an all-weather route to Leh and Lahaul-and-Spiti valleys, Christelle is delivering in the message below the result of the Handimachal team’s more modest tunnel programme – but I would say that we all have different scale challenges! We are happy to inform our friends and former volunteers around the world that the attendance of families in the Unit is still high and that the three-year long efforts seem to be « paying » at last…
"In one of our previous messages, we were announcing that we were working on the construction of a tunnel… and it is now complete. Kirna very nicely stiched together three laundry baskets (yes indeed !) to make a long soft tunnel: with creative ideas and very little equipment it is indeed possible to achieve great things.
Now children will fully benefit this small tunnel, the objective of which is to motivate them to move on all-four, crawl and consequently adopt new movement patterns.
Our team is very happy about the outcome of this tunnel project."
