Parboti’s Story

I met Paboti as a gorgeous little girl in my class when I first went to Gorkha as a volunteer in 1997. She is now a lovely young woman, married, her husband works overseas as do many young Nepali, and she lives in a single room with her wonderful hard working Mother Lila and teaches at a school for the poorest lower cast children. She has kept in touch over all these years and has been a good friend to volunteers, even staying with Naomi in hospital when she was ill.  These are the heartbreaking messages we are just receiving,
