My name is Tsewang Palmo, I am one of those students who are lucky enough to be sponsored by your organization.
About myself, I am a Tibetan refugee residing in Tashi Palkhiel Refugee Camp in Pokhara, Nepal. My parents and grandparents had to face great difficulties in crossing the mountains and hills from Tibet to Nepal, a journey that took months until they finally reached Nepal and settled here.
I was born here in Nepal,in the refugee camp,and I did my schooling in my own camp only but later things grew difficult to my parents, as we are of six siblings so my parents could not afford to continue my further studies. I was the second eldest out of six children.
At such time, with the help of some friends from Holland, whom my mom had met at lakeside while selling her souvenir jewelery on the street, they introduced me to the organization and provided me with a sponsor to continue my further studies. Even after the completion of my studies, my sponsor was transferred to my younger sister kalsang Dolma and it has been continued till last year when she finally completed her nursing course.
I, my sister and our entire family are very grateful for your support!
Today I am working as a teacher in our community, where I grew up in. I have learned that imparting education to children is truly rewarding and empowering and I see it as a way to fulfilled my dreams and others.
I am writing this in order to express my full gratitude to your organization and to my beloved sponsor and friends ,that benefits so many other needy people and I feel blessed to have been part of your organization.
