Our Mission

BWCDO works with remote communities throughout Baltistan in Pakistan’s Gilgit-Baltistan region. Their work currently covers over 20 villages across six valleys: Basha, Braldu, Basho, Rondu, Thalay, and Hushe. The number of households per village ranges from 40 to 170 and is large without basic amenities such as electricity, telecommunication towers, proper road networks, hospitals, and schools. Additionally, the region is subject to harsh winters, with heavy snowfall and temperatures dropping to well below -40°C, further limiting access via road networks.
