Beechhanger Boarders Fundraise for Altevette School
On Monday pupils in Beechanger house were pleased to donate the £400 they have raised to sponsor a pupil of Altevette School: a school providing accommodation and education for girls from impoverished families in the remote Mustang Highlands of Nepal. £350 will pay for the living costs and accommodation of a pupil for one year. The school provides the only education for girls in the region, providing opportunities for the pupils, without which their choices are very limited by poverty and often tragic. The rest of the money raised will contribute towards repairs to the infrastructure of the school or teaching costs. Co-founder of the school, Linda Ambrose, came to Beechanger to tell the girls some more about the school, and accept the money on behalf of Altevette school.
