Give Hope and an Education to 7 Kids in Nepal

All 7 Kids Passed National Exams with Honors!


We got some wonderful news today - all 7 of our oldest children passed their national exams (called SLCs) with honors - both boys with Distinction, and all 5 girls in First Division. This national exam is very important, because if a child doesn't pass with high marks, they are not considered fit for higher education.

Because Ashok and Sajan passed with Distinction, they will perhaps be eligible for scholarships, or at least have more options open to them. The girls, Kalpana Pun, Kalpana Thapa, Ganga, Laxmi and Pabitra, will be eligible for higher education and should have their choice of course work because of their high grades.

Thank you for supporting these wonderful kids - as our friend and donor Anne said, these are the future leaders of their country... and the path to world peace is educating kids like these. Thanks for doing your part.

We've attached some individual photos - hope you enjoy.
