The graduates celebrate with brothers and sisters
All seven children who passed their National Exams have moved on to new schools for their Class 11 and 12 higher education - the expenses of their first semester are covered, thanks to generous donors like you.
Ashok and Sajan are going to Little Angels College in Kathmandu, where they are studying Computer Science; Kalpana Pun is going to United College, a school with a very stringent admissions policy, where she is studying Management; Pabitra, Kalpana Thapa and Ganga have all gained admission to Omega College, where they're studying Languages and Hotel Management; and Laxmi is attending National Open University, working toward a Bachelor's degree in Public Health.
In August, we had a big celebration at Ama Ghar to honor them for passing their exams with such high marks - you'll find some photos of the event below. Each of the graduates invited a friend in addition to their Ama Ghar brothers and sisters, and we were also joined by six of our volunteers from the U.S. Everyone enjoyed delicious Nepali food, dancing, singing and a talent show - so a good time was had by all. We wish you could have been there!
If you know others who are interested in supporting these future leaders, please encourage them to do so - we still need funding for the remainder of this year and all of 2012. Again, thanks for your support.
