The people of Zainabad are farmers & salt manufacturers. Through Desert Coursers, the Family supports a host of social projects around Zainabad. While some profits are used for the upkeep and modernization of the Resort, this is always balanced to make sure most of the profits are ploughed back into society. This includes running a High School that is accessed by local and children from nearby villages.
In 1999 local water wells were reconstructed to provide water to about 2000 people, in the same year, opened a boarding school for about 40 children whose parents are salt manufacturers and hence deprived of education. The school gives them basic education, lodging & boarding and an escape from being in a labour-intensive salt pan.
Young people from all over the world donate their time to teach the children something new. Others provide funds and specific donations.
They are also an integral part of Desert Coursers and who we are. When we think of Desert Coursers, we think of Akaash Ganga, ZHEDP, Salt Children, Desert Coursers and our natural world.
