I earn a sum of Rs. Five Thousand roughly per month pulling a cart on the Nepal-India border. The amount, earned after hours of hardship every day, is not even enough to help survive the daily life of my family and eventually I have to take loans to sustain. Due to the same, managing money for my daughter, Priyanka’s education was impossible. As she has been awarded the Sadbhaw Scholarships, I now am at peace that my daughter can study without any obstruction till SLC.

Being born as a girl, my parents had already decided to keep me out of school. Because of our poor financial condition, my parents could not afford to send the all three of us to school and chose my brothers education over mine. I felt so helpless that I even wanted to put an end to my life. But, I heartily thank Sadbhaw Scholarships to help me pursue my schooling further. And here I stand today, living my dream to become a Nurse in near future.
