From my project, Sunrise Nima, Nepal, 2016.
“As soon as I could walk, I worked in the fields. It was hard. I was badly dressed, poorly fed, uncultivated. I never went to school, but I was too curious to see other places, so when I turned 16, I left the countryside for the big city, Kathmandu”.
Now, at 60 years old, she helps many children. Thus she created a foundation, to help the children from villages of the Rolwaling region in their schooling. A gift also extended to the children of her employees.
“I give them the chance I never had.”
Created in 2011, the Sunrise Nima Child Care Foundation’s goal is to collect the necessary funds to provide shelter, food, medical care, studies and school materials to the children. Some of them are orphans, some others just with parents that can’t provide a good education. The foundation is located in a neighborhood of Kathmandu, up on the hills, called Balaju.
Depending of the years, there could be between 15 to 20 chilren, from very young child to young adult. Nima and her husband Purna offer the opportunity of schooling and of an opening of doors which will allow the beneficiaries to both build a future and find good employment.
One often says that the future of a country relies on the education of his children, in the eyes of his youth. Focusing and starting from the foundation in Balaju, i have tried to feel the context, meeting different kind of children in various part of Nepal : Kathmandu, its valley, Dulikhel, Pokhara and the Annapurnas, Chitwan and the border of India.
