Sangita Earns Highest Marks

You may recall that Sam's House admitted an older girl who needed educational support to continue through college.  Despite being an excellent student in high school, Sangita needed a scholarship to attend college.  She now attends the Kanya Campus college in Pokhara while devoting spare time to helping the younger children with their studies.

For her first year of college, Sangita earned the highest marks in her class on her final exams.
