The Spiti Projects need £101,000 to go towards an Eye & Dental Clinic for the 10,000 Tibetan people of the valley.
Sponsoring a Child is one of the most worthwhile things that can be done for Spiti children of deprived families. Your donations change the lives of these young people, paying for clothes, school fees, books and transport.
The Craft Centre was set up in 1997 to provide the women of the Valley an opportunity to earn their own income, through providing a commercial outlet for the traditional knitted and woven crafts of the area.
The Community Centre will provide a focal point for social and cultural life in Kaza, as well as providing a location for health services. Once completed, the centre will include a hall, and kitchen as well as a craft centre and a library.
The Mission Hospital in Kaza was started in 1993 and completed in 1995, under the umbrella of the Lady Willingdon Hospital in Manali. The structure is now 15 years old.
Mane Village Water Pump pipes have been laid from a spring in the valley below the village for a distance of 320 metres, and a pump has been installed in the village.
Mane Village School building started in 2002 and was completed in 2005.
Knit-for-Spiti was set up by Spiti Projects in 2008. We invite volunteers in the UK to knit sweaters for the children of the valley and have had a tremendous response from all over the country, especially from Scotland. We send the sweaters which are distributed to Spiti children for the winter, when temperatures fall below minus 30C.
Mane Village Clinic completed in 2010, is now in full use.
The Mud Brick Project was set up in 2006 to encourage the return to traditional methods of building which are more suitable to conditions in a seismic zone and which offer better thermal qualities than concrete in such a high altitude area.
