The Story

Altevette School is a UK based charity working in cooperation with Altevette Onlus, a non-profit organization, based in Italy to fund the building and running of a fully residential school in Upper Mustang, Nepal.

We are unpaid volunteers raising donations to fund accommodation and education for 51 disadvantaged girls (5 to 18 years of age) from poor families living in remote villages in the highlands of Upper Mustang on the border with Tibet and Nepal.

The girls, who have no other options for schooling, receive a full government school curriculum as well as 3 languages - Tibetan, Nepali and English, in a safe learning environment.  Buddhist ritual activities and Buddhist instruments such as gongs, cymbals, trumpet etc. are also learned.

The school was opened in 2012 with 18 students and due to the high demand from families wishing to enrol their daughters in school, there are now 51 girls and possibly 7 more girls will be enrolled before winter term opens later this month (October 2017).

This growth has resulted in the need to build more classrooms, dormitories and teacher accommodation.  Due to the severe space limitation girls are using the kitchen areas and their dormitories for their homework studies.  As the school currently provides education from Lower Kindergarten to Class 8, this lack of study areas is restricting the older girls in their studies.

Please help us raise the funds to build a small library and study area to help girls make the most of their schooling opportunity in this harsh environment.  We need to raise an extra €2,500 over our normal budget for funding the school. 

As we are unpaid volunteers, all donations collected are 100% sent to the school in Upper Mustang without any administration deductions.

Dear friends and supporters, a short update to thank you all so very much for such an amazing and generous response so far. We have received almost 70% of our target needed to fund the construction of a study area and library for the girls at school in Upper Mustang.

Heartfelt thanks to all our friends and supporters for generously giving so much in just 6 weeks of fundraising.  We’re planning to begin ordering construction materials soon and are hoping they can be transported before the harsh winter weather sets in so when summer term begins in March/April next year then the girls may have a library and study area to support them in their studies.

All donations are very gratefully received and will are transferred directly to the school to fund this project.  As we are volunteers in our small charity, we have no overheads and can assure our donors that no deductions are made from donation monies received.

Very many thanks to everyone for their kindness in supporting us so far either with a financial donation and/or sharing to increase awareness.  Please continue to help spread the word by sharing with family & friends.
