SEA welcomes new boarders at Shree Liti in Dhading!!


On Friday, May 3, 2013, Marie-Hélène and Carole (2 SEA Board members) visited Dhading District to meet with the principal of Shree Liti and provide further scholarships to students.

They also met with the kids sponsored in 2012-2013, 7 of which sit for the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) exam, the final examination in the secondary school system of Nepal, and were waiting for their results.

Of course, Rajindra, Anga and Nyma were part of the trip. And Elias Sfaxi, an experienced photographer, joined all of us. Unfortunately, Sarita had to work that day and couldn’t come with us.

From the 2012-2013 group of students, SEA has decided to continue the sponsorship of 5 kids only, namely Ram Maya and Phool Maya, who have been transferred to the SEA Home, and Pradip, Ram Kumar and Radha Krishna, who continue to study at Shree Liti.

All of the other sponsorships have been discontinued, either because the students have finished their secondary education without meeting SEA scholarship eligibility requirements for higher education, or because the parents are now able to finance the studies of their children.

Pradip continues to live at Shree Liti as a boarder, while Ram Kumar and Radha Krishna now attend school as day scholars.

Indeed, the two latter kids moved back to their parents’ homes, as it takes them only 10 minutes to walk from home to school. Pradip was promoted to 7th grade (with a performance score of 46% in 6th grade), Radha Krishna to 4th grade (with a score of 49% in 3rd grade) and Ram Kumar to 2nd grade (score of 58% in 1st grade).

*****

It is our great pleasure to introduce our 9 newly sponsored boarders.

All of these children, who used to live in extreme poverty, now stay at school during the school year. Many of them are from broken families. All of them were preselected in April by a team comprising the director of Shree Liti, Anga and Nyma.

So, including Pradip, SEA now sponsors a total of 10 boarders at Shree Liti.

Saroj is 14 years old. He has no father, his mother is a homemaker. He has been living alone with his mother since his 2 elder brothers left years ago. They have no source of income and survive month to month. His home is one hour walk away from school.

Saroj has recently been supported by the school, as he is a good and hard-working student. He successfully passed 7th grade examinations with an overall score of 60%. His favourite subjects are sciences and maths, where he scored respectively 73% and 83% at his latest exams. His dream is to become an engineer.

Help and sponsor a boarder at Shree Liti school, by giving 420 € a year (or 35 € a month), so less than 140 € a year (or less than 12€ a month) with the tax reduction.
