Hello everyone, I’m Linda – you might know me as a Director of Woodlanders Management Company although this is just a part of who I am. I’m a microbiologist, run my own company and am the founder of a charity, Altevette Project, which raised money to build a school for impoverished and vulnerable girls living in the remote highlands of Upper Mustang on the Nepalese border with Tibet. This photo is our school taken a few weeks ago (April 2021).
Most families in this harsh & unforgiving region are subsistence farmers and traditions and lifestyle of that area are largely Tibetan in nature. Most of our children speak Tibetan as their first language.
Please do check out my website https://altevetteproject.org/ for more information.
Here I am with little Binu (baby) who was our most recent arrival last year.
