Scholarship for Sangita

Sam’s House recently admitted a new girl into the house with special circumstances… here are the details from Dinesh:

“We had received an application from a girl (16) who had just passed SLC in first division (equal to high school graduation) from Nawalparasi district. Her name is Sangita. Her mother abandoned her when she was young and her father passed away last year. She has two younger sisters living with their relatives in the village. Even though Sangita passed School Leaving Certificate Exam in first division, she did not have any money to go to college.  Sangita's aunt (mother's sister) is studying in a college in Pokhara.  She had heard about Sam's House. She and her friend came to SH with an application for Sangita seeking help for her further study. After investigation and all the procedures, the admission committee decided to support her for further study. She has been admitted in Kanya Campus (girl's college) at Nadipur. She lives in SH and helps little children with their study in the morning and evening and she goes to college during the day. She is a smart girl. She is getting along very well with everyone in the house.”

You may have noticed Sangita appearing in some recent photos.  She has been a great influence in the house and has become fast friends with the older girls. 

As with all things we do at Sam’s House, you make this possible.
