I've written about Amrit before. He was living in a room all by himself, living on food given to him by neighbors. His father was alcoholic and once tried to throw Amrit and his brother under a bus when they wouldn't give him their Deshain money. Onlookers turned him into the police and Amrit's brother went to Namaste House. But they had only room from one child.

Here's his old room...

The first time we went to meet Amrit, he was not very excited about the prospect of living at Sam's House, even though his neighbors tried to tell him it would be fun and good for him...

Fortunately, we were able to convince Amrit to join us at Sam's House. He finished the school year at his old school (Nepali year ends in April) and came to Bagar to join his new brothers and sisters. He seems much happier now playing with Bishal and Suresh and the whole gang.
