Social Work Journey
It all started on a cold winter evening when she saw a few children sitting by the fire in Durbar Marg. They had worn-torn clothes and were sniffing glue. It broke her heart and made her feel truly concerned. That very incident triggered her interest in social work and founded Shelter Nepal to help these underprivileged kids. Her main goal is to improve the lives of poor children, provide them with education, rehabilitation, and legal identity. Once the children become capable enough and financially independent, they move out and embark on their journey of life.
