Nursery class teacher and Principal, Apsara Karki, helps a 4 year old student learn to write the Latin letters with a notebook and a pencil provided by the school. The students are charged no expense for attendance at Punarbal Shikshya Sadan. The school even provides a healthy lunch and after-school snack. (view small | med | large | orig)

The children come from all over Nepal
At Punarbal Shikshya Sadan, the students come from a variety of districts. Most of the children coming from far away live in orphanages scattered all over Kathmandu - and therefore does the school bus take a long time to collect them all and costs a lot of money. With the new Punarbal Care and Support Center more children will be added to this chart, children who otherwise woulnd't go to school. (view small | med | large | orig)
