Sight to Sky was formed under the theme of mindful travel. With a passion for trekking the Himalayas and a desire to give back to the community, our co-founders decided to establish an NGO that furthers these tenets.
Its origins traces back to co-founder Elizabeth Tan, who first travelled to Ladakh in 2009 on a life-changing solo trip. Having stayed at a nunnery and taught English, Elizabeth saw first-hand how much medical attention was lacking in that remote region. Upon returning to Singapore, she joined forces with a local NGO and launched subsequent medical missions to Ladakh. In 2015, Sight to Sky was born out of that experience and now operates as an independent NGO.
