Every year, Reinstalling Hope provides full-tuition scholarships to high-achieving, impoverished students at each of our partner schools. In the 2016-2017 school year, we were able to support over 30 students! Our scholarship provision depends largely on the generosity of our donors — the more you give, the more students we can empower. Read about some of our past scholars below:
Barsha is a fifteen year-old whose family migrated to Kathmandu from a rural part of the Kavrepalanchowk district of Nepal. Her father drives a gas truck, her mother works as a construction worker, and family instability has forced Barsha to change schools multiple times. She knows that her family’s situation will be difficult to improve, but is determined to do well in school for the sake of her and her family’s future. Barsha’s smile and persistence through tough times continues to inspire the Reinstalling Hope team.
Prabesh is currently in the 9th grade at Shree Baghbhairab Secondary School. Coming from a very poor family, Prabesh never owned proper school shoes until, through the support of our generous donors, Reinstalling Hope was able to present him his first pair. Prabesh’s story is not uncommon, and he is inspired to lead by example and make the most of each of his opportunities.
Mamila has a passion for communicating her ideas with others, and has demonstrated her public speaking skills in several regional speech competitions. She is an excellent embodiment of what Nepalese girls can do if given equal opportunities. However, both of her parents are unemployed and must care for her two sisters and three brothers. We are actively looking for higher education institutes in Nepal that will be willing to provide need-based financial aid to Mamila.
Sameer is a 10th grader at Shree Baghbhairab Secondary School, and is the valedictorian of his class. He also is an excellent soccer player and dreams of playing soccer professionally. Sameer’s father works in the local water supply office and his mother is a housekeeper. Their family lives together in a small mud house. We are seeking funds to provide both school supplies and soccer training to Sameer.
Asmita’s family could only afford to send one of their two children to private school, so the 17 year-old girl attends public school while her 16 year-old brother attends private school. She is the salutatorian of her class and loves playing volleyball. Reinstalling Hope is working at the grass root level to eliminate gender discrimination from Nepal and help girls like Asmita.
Shree is currently in 10th grade at Shree Baghbhairab Secondary School, and continues to impress us with his huge potential. He is the only child of a deaf milk factory worker and an illiterate mother who won’t be able to afford his education after this year. Shree has received financial support for school supplies from Reinstalling Hope in the past, but his dreams to attend university will only materialize if further scholarship funding becomes available to him after this year.
