Thanks to you, disabled children can attend school in Nepal
By Sanju Poudel - Project Leader
Playing sports at school despite his disability
Thanks to your generosity and compassion, disabled Nepali students who commonly face isolation, discrimination, and stigma, are thriving through NYF’s Disabled School scholarship program.
One of these students “Prajun” is physically disabled without a right hand. His large family lives in a remote village and could not afford to send Prajun nor his brother who is also disabled to school.
Recognizing how bright Prajun is, a local school teacher encouraged his family to seek NYF support. Prajun has been attending his village school with an NYF scholarship since November 2016 and is making remarkable progress. He is in third grade and enjoys playing sports with his friends as much as he enjoys his studies.
This benefit ripples through Prajun’s family and community. His brother is learning through Prajun’s experience and his community is more accepting of both of their disabilities.
Prajun’s future is so much brighter because people like you care.
