In honor of the International Day of the Girl, we celebrate Manisha, who came to Ama Ghar as a small child from a remote village. Her mother had died and she was left to work long hours in the fields cutting and carrying grass for her stepmother – she had a very hard life and no hope for the future.
When she came to Ama Ghar, she found a real home and a real family. Through the love and support of that Ama Ghar family, she learned to laugh and and play – and to study hard, too. She excelled in school and ultimately received a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management, which included a one-year internship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
She is now a beautiful and accomplished young woman, living independently and rising in the ranks at the Radisson Hotel in Kathmandu. We are grateful to all of you who support the mission of Ama Ghar to help our children, who come from such diverse and traumatic backgrounds, to realize their dreams.
Please donate now to ensure that all of our girls – and their brothers, too – have the opportunity to escape from poverty and abuse and live a full and happy life. Thank you for your ongoing support.
