So far following centres:Stakmo, Gonpa, Saboo, Nurla, Sakti, Stok,Katpa and Diskthtsal or Housing Colony have successfully completed the learning, hence all these centers have closed.

Today following centers are running in the respective villages: Choglamsar, Palam, Tukla, Yangthang, Saspotse, Ney, Umla, Skalzangling, Sankar, Chubi, Motik Market and Diskittsal.

These elderly people didn’t get opportunity to go to school in their young age therefore they don’t know reading and writing even local Ladakhi language (Bodyik).
