Rekha's Perfect Report Card

Rekha with her Perfect Report Card!
Rekha with her Perfect Report Card!

Today we're sharing a photo of our little Rekha with her perfect 4.0 report card! We are so proud of her - she is following in the footsteps of her Ama Ghar sisters like Manisha, who also received perfect grades in elementary school - and she is now working on a Bachelor’s degree in Australia.

Rekha will continue to do well as she is reading constantly and is always anxious to be the leader when playing new games. She is totally absorbed in Nancy Drew and the Box Car Children book series. The staff is spending a lot of time in bookstores trying to keep up with her new requests!

Rekha's success is an example of how sometimes the worst times lead to the biggest breakthroughs… going to school at home during lockdown seems to have been particularly good for Classes 2-5, who were taught at Ama Ghar by their older brothers and sisters. All kudos go to the older ones who kept the children engaged and exposed them to new subjects other than the school curriculum. Rekha was one of those children who became really excited about learning during that time.

We even received a note from the principal of the elementary school, who wrote to tell us “We are very happy with how the Ama Ghar children are performing now, not only in studies but also there has been a big change in their behaviour. They have become very disciplined.” Silver linings!

Unfortunately, since all this happy news, the schools in Nepal have gone back into lockdown due to the extreme second wave of COVID cases in our country. We hope, for the sake of our country and our people's health, that all the children will be back to school soon, but we are comforted by the fact that the Ama Ghar children can study and learn in a safe environment. We fervently wish for the same for all children everywhere.

Thank you for your support of our mission and we hope for better times to come.
