Since June 2018 Ansari Cachemire has been committed to the Association France Himalaya Tiers-Monde and has become a sponsor of the Lamdon Jamyang Primary School in Khaltsi, Ladakh (India). The humanitarian association France Himalaya Tiers-Monde has chosen to finance this school's project because it provides schooling for children from deprived families living in isolated villages in Ladakh. The Khalsi public school opened in 2010 with 32 students and now has 175. The school is run by the efforts of the younger generation of the Ladakh Buddhist Association (Sham chapter). It consists of 10 classrooms ranging from first to fifth grade. The main structure is made of cement, the windows are seismically upgraded.

At present, only children from the vicinity of Khaltsi can go there, some after a 2-hour drive. Aware of the importance of providing education for their children, many families from far away want their children to be able to attend the school as well, so a boarding school has become essential and is currently under construction. The building will have a total of 15 rooms, including several classrooms, a boarding school, a refectory with a kitchen, a meeting room and a recreation room equipped with a reading corner and a play area for the children's well-being. Each year the Association provides free school meals for the 175 children attending the school.
