Congratulations to Bikram

Congratulations to Bikram for passing the SLC (School Leaving Certificate) in 1st Division, among the brightest students in all of Nepal. Durga (who I write about in this earlier post) and Bikram both came from lives of extreme adversity as young children to achieve the highest marks in the entire nation on the exam. They both will be entering college in the next few weeks and have bright futures ahead of them.

It is children like Bikram and Durga who are the reason I continue to run Aastha House and do this amazing work. These children never fail to impress me with their intelligence and resilience in the face of extreme adversity. They have truly risen up, as the name of my foundation, The Rising Child Nepal Foundation, so aptly describes, and shown what every child in Nepal is capable of, be they beggar, orphan or child laborer.
