Opportunity to Learn

She is Ashika, a 13-year old girl from Nepal. There are eight members in her family and her parents have to work hard to meet their everyday needs.

Because her parents are daily wage workers, it was difficult for her to continue schooling. The COVID-19/pandemic further worsened the scenario, and her family went through a difficult time when the country went into lockdown. Her parents lost their source of income and they had to survive on little savings and relief support provided by various organizations.

After the lockdown was lifted, she decided to work alongside her parents to be able to bring money home.

In conversation with Ashika, the Captivating Village project team found that she has hopes and dreams to stand on her own feet and become independent in the future. She is not afraid of her weak financial background. She has a positive outlook and always hoped that there will be a way out of her problems and she will become a motivation for her family and community.

Ashika herself requested the project team to enroll her in the Alternative Learning Program (ALP) class. She explained her situation and her strong desire to become educated. She did not want to miss this second opportunity that came her way. Now she is a regular student at the ALP center.

Ashika is now hopeful that she can fulfill her dreams and conveyed her thanks to everyone behind the scene who made it possible for girls like her to have a second opportunity to learn.
