For the Promotion and Preservation of Himalayan Cultures

carteThe purpose of ARCH is to gather knowledge of the cultural practices of the Himalayan region, as well as to help make the transmission and preservation of those practices viable through the establishment of a funding base for research. Through its research projects and in partnership with those active in the field, ARCH intends to function as a real laboratory that can help answer the questions that face these ancestral cultures and help mitigate the effects of the cultural and religious upheavals that their societies face in the context of the modern world.
