2018 was a year of consolidation for Spiti Projects:
The Community Centre is now up and running. We have a delightful resident cook who provides meals to the local people and visiting tourists. The meals are all fully organic, using home-grown produce, and totally delicious.
The solar-thermal technology incorporated in the construction of the building is working brilliantly and is keeping the inside of the building well above zero when the temperature outside is minus 15-25C.
A team of Eye Doctors from the Rotary Eye Hospital in Palampur came to the Valley this summer to carry out Eye Treatment Camps. Their work was much appreciated as the nearest oculist is over 300K away from the valley.
We are still raising funds for the eye equipment for the Eye Centre in the Community building.
The Child Sponsorship programme is going well. We now support 35 young students from poor families. This is giving them an opportunity for a good education and a really positive future.
We are proud to announce the Apple Tree Project. This is to supply poor families with two apple trees each to be planted in their back garden. Apples are rich in Vitamin C, and this will be hugely beneficial to all the family, and a special treat for the children.
