We can introduce a new scholarship holder!
Lhamu (Shanti) Khadka from Chyangsar will be training as a social worker at our partner Social Work Institute. Roots for Life will cover the costs as part of a scholarship. Lhamu was born on the 3rd of November 1999, so he is 19 years old and especially great: Not yet married! Her family lives in very modest circumstances. The mother is a farmer, the father teacher – the funding would have been difficult for them.
Lhamu’s father teaches at a school in Kerung but is originally trained as a librarian. There is also a library planned in the training hall. Carola Gosch visited the family at home and after initial discussions Mr Khadka agreed to take over the organization of the library!
