Sponsor a young girl to live in a school hostel. Contributions towards the £30 a month cost.
The girls in Padma
School come from poor backgrounds. Some are orphans, some are sent to live with family in Kathmandu from the countryside, some live with foster families where they will be expected to work as domestic help.
Just as an example of the challenges they face; earlier this year a girl left the school because their ‘foster’ parents refused to let her leave the home. In
Nepal, the school can do nothing to challenge that. So, they are in the process of building a hostel so that at least some of the girls can live in a safe place.
