Eighteen-year-old “Shiva” is from a particularly poor district in western Nepal. For as long as he could remember, Shiva’s large family of 10 struggled to make ends meet - and by the sixth grade, Shiva had dropped out of school.
Now enrolled in NYF’s Vocational Training program, Shiva is so pleased to be learning how to be a carpenter. “Carpentry enables me to do innovative work, like creating a new product out of wood, and this makes me very happy,” he says, proudly.
With so much infrastructure left to rebuild in Nepal after the 2015 Earthquake, skilled construction workers are in high-demand. Shiva is excited for a well-paying career in carpentry after he completes his training, and he looks forward to being able to help support his family and younger siblings.
But he couldn’t have gone this far without your generosity. We - and especially young adults like Shiva - are so thankful for your support.
