The Spiti Projects projects have been initiated since the inception of the charity in 1993. See below for a list of these projects.
Sponsor a Child
Sponsoring a Child is one of the most worthwhile things that can be done for Spiti children of deprived families. Your donations have changed the lives of these young people, paying for clothes, school fees, books and transport.
The Craft Centre
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.
Kaza Eye Centre
The Spiti Projects is currently working towards a new and exciting service for the farmers of the Spiti Valley. It is estimated that there are thousands of people suffering with eye problems in the region of the Spiti Valley, with about 2,500 people requiring support.
United Nations Award Community Centre
The Community Centre provides a focal point for social & cultural life in Kaza, & providing a location for health services. It includes a hall, kitchen, a craft centre & a library. Simple accommodation upstairs for home-stays which provides income to be self-sustaining.
The Mission Hospital completed in 1995. It deals with many illnesses that are endemic in the region. It is fully used during the summer months with doctors from Manali & visiting doctors from overseas continuing to support & provide medical help for the community.
Mane Village School
Mane Village School building started in 2002 and was completed in 2005. There was no road to the village and all materials had to be brought in by donkey. The plan included five classrooms, a staff room, and a library dedicated to Natalie Pyke who sent over 60 boxes of books to the school.
Volunteers in the UK have knitted more than 3 sweaters for each child in the valley.
We would like to thank all the kind knitters for their support over the last 10 years.
Mane Village Clinic
Mane Village Clinic completed in 2010. Teams of doctors from Shimla visit regularly to hold screening clinics. People come from all over the valley to have a check-up. Routine blood pressure sugar and cholesterol levels are tested, which lead to improving community health.
Our charity is committed to environmental and conservation issues and to helping improve the health, hygiene and general wellbeing of the people of the Spiti Valley.
