There are many 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. I’ve started a new fundraiser and am aiming to try and raise £350/$400USD, 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 to buy rice, soap and other essential supplies. We promise that as always, no deductions will be taken from the donations by Altevette Project nor the school – only a small international bank charge which we can’t avoid. Your donation will go directly into the local economy and help people desperately in need.
Please help us – even a donation of the cost of a cup of coffee can buy 3Kg of rice for a family. Please be generous to help those desperately in need.
