A magnificent recital on behalf of AMTM

Jasmina Kulaglich gave a recital on behalf of AMTM at the Salle Cortot in Paris, on the 8th July 2011.
It was a very moving journey with Chopin, Liszt, Tchaikovsky and Tajcevic.

The profit from this wonderful evening: 2,200€!

Summary of 2010

In 2010 our 4,100 members gave us their very generous financial support of an income of 568,373€.  This is an increase of 3.4% on last year.
This result is very encouraging and only a few associations are able to be proud of that...

In spite of the world-wide economical situation which is still going through a difficult period, thanks to the commitment shown by everyone, AMTM has been able to maintain its actions at a sustained rate, and even undertake new projects.
This can be seen by our achievements in the field where more than ¾ of our income has been put to good use.

Watever the activity, our main aim is to maintain this ratio.  Indeed, it is the clearest sign of good management by an association.

It goes without saying that as long as the world crisis remains gloomy, it is only the mobilisation of our members which can make all the difference.

The President, Treasurer and Auditor reports can be downloaded here.



Maintaining AMTM's actions

After more than 17 years as a volunteer for AMTM, and in particular with responsibility for the sponsorships at Spiti and Rewalsar, from now Brigitte Le Cossec wishes to devote her energies to her personal projects.  Therefore, it was necessary to reorganise the mission for which she was responsible.  In the meantime, a temporary system has been put in place, so that the 94 sponsored persons  (45 at Rewalsar and 49 at Spiti)  are not penalised, and will continue to receive their mail and money from their sponsors in the normal way.

Tara Lama, the wife of the Head of Sanag Chöling has volunteered. She immediately became involved with this task and agreed to carry out the interviews, take photographs and also to hand over the sponsorship money individually to each sponsored person.
Our ties with Tara’s family go back a long way.  She spends six months of the year in Kathmandu and six months in Spiti.

First of all, the lengthy interviews were sent by E-mail to the AMTM House, printed out and handed over to Tara (there are no facilities of printing in Spiti).  Then the sponsors’ letters were sent out via FeDex and quickly received by Tara in Kathmandu.
Now she is preparing to leave for Spiti.  Upon her return she will send us a detailed report of her mission...
