Arto Carpus Castelo Foundation’s operations in South Asia concentrate on India. The beginning stages of our activities target the remote regions of India, particularly around Dharamsala and the village of Naddi, which are situated in the mountainous northern regions. The area was devastated by an earthquake in 1905, which caused an almost total depopulation. Dharamsala is especially notable for the presence of the Central Tibetan Administration and His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Several of India’s sociopolitical challenges are environmental in nature, and are being targeted by the Union Government’s public policy. Arto Carpus Castelo Foundation’s driving principle is the creation of a connection between mankind, nature and various cultures, which is achieved via improving and supporting local entrepreneurship. This goal is in perfect harmony with the aforementioned Union Government policy.

ACCF supports a number of fledgling entrepreneurs in the Dharamsalan village of Naddi by educating them in various fields, ranging from linguistic skills to the intricacies of business startup. Environmental responsibility is a fundamental entrepreneurial value to ACCF projects.

”A clean environment is a human right.”, His Holiness Dalai Lama, 1990.
