Aloona Tola village in Ludhiana gets a makeover for rural eco-tourism

A village in Ludhiana with a population of just 2,000 people, is getting a makeover, thanks to a community organisation that works on creating model villages for sustainable rural eco-tourism. RoundGlass Foundation, along with volunteers from different countries, have started working in Aloona Tola village. Apart from adorning the village walls with artworks, they have also created a smart classroom for children in a government middle school in the village. Sarpanch Naurang Singh said that credit for the project goes to Gurpreet Singh, a football coach, who contacted the organisation and pitched case of the village. Soon, volunteers from around the globe landed in the village and started work with their own funds.
