Altevette Project    (UK Registered Charity No. 1177053) funds the development and support of a school project for disadvantaged girls in the high altitude and remote region of Upper Mustang in Nepal near the border with Tibet.  Please check out our website https://altevetteproject.org/ or like us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/altevetteproject/

Girls in this area are vulnerable to extreme poverty and exploitation and have little opportunity for education due to the lack of schools at high altitude in such remote and harsh regions.

During the current Covid pandemic, many of our girls are quarantined in remote regions with their families although almost half of our 50 children have no families to return to and they are remaining in school.  

Our children are amongst the luckier ones.  Whilst the facilities may seem basic compared to what our western children enjoy, they are in a safe community, have access to toilet facilities, soap and water and have 3 good meals per day of nutritious food.

There are many families in surrounding communities who are so much worse off.  The school has been doing some humanitarian work delivering food and soap to desperate people in the villages surrounding Pokhara and we'd like to extend this work  to needy families in Mustang.  We are aiming to try and raise £400 which would enable the school to buy enough food to feed many families for several weeks.

Please please can you help us to help others in desperate need? 

With no welfare state, and no day work available at all for the past 4 months, no running water at home let alone no soap for hand washing, many can hardly feed their families nor have the luxury for even the most basic hygiene practices.

All donations, however modest will help enormously.  We promise that as always, no deductions will be taken from the donations by Altevette Project nor the school - only a modest one-off international bank charge which we can't avoid. 

Your donation will go directly into the local economy and help people desperately in need.
