Here at Serets we feel that it is our duty to give back to the cultures with whom we work. In hopes of contributing a drop in the bucket to an endless amount of worthy causes, Ira and Sylvia Seret, along with a group of their close friends, have started The Jindhag Foundation—a non-profit organization that aims to support and preserve the cultural diversity of traditional and indigenous peoples around the world.
The first project of the Jindhag Foundation focused on providing daily support for Tibetan monks living in exile. More recently, the foundation undertook the task of rebuilding Istalif—a small village in Afghanistan that had been devastated by years of war. Please visit The Jindhag Foundation for more information about these projects including a 2007 CNN interview with Ali Istalifi about the successful Afghanistan project.
