  4. 4. Totally isolated, with no vehicular transport connections to other villages or far-offcities. Life is very difficult here owing to unavailability of basic needs and lack of jobopportunities. There are no good schools, hospitals, shops and transport facilities.When Manish was 4 years old, he had lost his father and his mother abandoned him. Fora short while, relatives cared for him. But after some months, his relatives made theimmense journey from Mugu to the city of Kathmandu, taking Manish with them. Theyfinally heard about ‘Volunteer Foundation Nepal’ and brought Manish to us. That was in2011.Manish is happy in his new home where he is studying and playing with other children.Man is a one of the smartest little boys at VFN Papa’s Home. He is always studying witha big smile on his face and has a great interest for all activities and school subjects.Although English is not his mother tongue, he nevertheless communicates comfortablyin either English or Nepali. He is a fast learner and good listener. He is always one of thefirst to complete his homework and obtains good marks in class!Manish enjoys playing football and reading simple literature. He is a good boy, alwayscooperating with those who care for him. His dream is to be a Pilot!Chakresh Shahi My name is Charesh Shahi, but my friends call me ‘Rocky’. Iwas born on 3rd January, 1999 in the remote region of Dolpa, surrounded by beautifulvalleys and mountain peaks.When I was born, my papa and mama owned land and they made a living growingvegetables and rearing goats. But sadly, that was all to change when I was born. I wasdiagnosed with a heart problem and my mama with severe stomach problems. We bothhad to have operations.In my country, we have to pay for all our medicines and treatment, including the operations. This costs somuch money. My papa had to sell his land piece by piece to pay for everything.After my operations, I had to have special injections every three weeks, but these alsocost money. A kind sponsor paid for the first year, but after that there was no-one to payand my parents did not have any money either and could no longer care for me. So therewas nothing to do, apart from sending me away to a home in Kathmandu. I was 10 yearsold.
  5. 5. Now I am 14 years old, having been at VFN (Volunteer Foundation Nepal) for 4 years. Ilike it here. I have lots of friends and go to school. I like learning about different things.I was very happy this year as I am able to travel all the way back to my village forDashain and Tihar. To get to my village takes 12 hours on old bus and then another 30mins on an airplane. It also cost lots of money and my Papa has been saving all the lastyears just for this…that I can visit him and Mama. I am so excited about seeing my Mamaand Papa again. It will be so hard to leave and come back to Kathmandu. But I must,because the doctor say I must have injections for many more year. He say until I am 35!I will be old then!When I grow up, I want to be a doctor. But now I like to play football!Dipesh Timalsina My name is Dipesh Timalsina. I am from Kavre District (Nepal).Now I am 16 years old. During my childhood my friends used to call me by thenickname: DeepuWhile talking about my childhood and about my family, I had very sorrowful childhoodas it passed in such a way that I can’t express in terms of words.To be true, my father always used to drink alcohol and beat my mother. There wasalways strife in my house. The daily routine was that my father used to torture my mother both physically and mentally. My heart beat always used to rise and I couldn’tcontrol my tears and cry openly.When I was 11, my mother left home as she could not tolerate the burden and torturethat my father used to give her. Even I could not endure so after my mother had left, Ialso left home, and moved wherever I liked, and I wanted to go.Neither family nor neighbour helped me in such tragic circumstance, and then I loved tojoin the group of street children. While with them, we used to beg money for ourlivelihood. Now I became one of the members of street children.Neither any festivals nor any feast that our culture uses to celebrate could not make mesmile. My 4 years in street passed by begging and taking cigarettes, gum and other badthings. Even I tasted the Dendrite (glue-sniffing) because it is believed that Dendritewould erase the hunger. In those days, we don’t have enough money even for filling ourhunger. I don’t like to think on it, it is of such a bad time that if I remember now, my eyesfill with tears.The life had been so difficult, and it’s too boring and depressing.
  6. 6. Then I met Papa in Boudha. He fed us and Papa introduced us street boys to Lalit Shahi.Papa and Lalit make ‘Papa’s Home’ for street boys. One day Lalit offered me a place in‘Papa’s Home’ and I got chance for education and now I got new papa Lalit and muwaDhanusha. As well as new Swiss mama called Hildy who she sponsors me for everythingI need.Now I am happy and I love to express my millions of thanks from the depth of my heartto all people with ‘Papa’s Home’ (VFN).Opindra Shahi My name is Opindra Shahi, but my friends call me ‘OP’ ….Ilike that! I’m EIGHT years old! I like that too! I was born, so Iwas told, in 2004. I don’t remember. My mama thought it was on the 18 March that year,so that is what they put down on my papers. My village is Tripurakot in the District ofDolpa. I don’t remember much about that place either.There’s a lot I don’t remember. My Papa for one. His name was Bhakt Bahadur Shahi. Idon’t know what he looked like, for he was killed in the civil war in 2005. My mama hadno photos of him. That is sad.When my papa died, the government gave my mama Nepali rupees 300,000 for ourliving and my education. That is sooo much money!! It was kept safe in a special bankaccount that only my mama could get into.My mama’s name is Jun Kumara Shahi. After my papa died, she was lonely and therewas no-one to care for her, so she married another man. I don’t remember his name.And I don’t want to! After he married my mama, he demanded that she give him themoney that was in the bank. All NRs 300,000 of it! He forced my mama to hand it over tohim. We never saw him or the money ever again! He was a bad man.My mama was now so poor that she could not even earn enough money from begging tofeed us both. My poor mama, she had to send me away to a home to be cared for. I crieda lot.Although I was very sad at leaving my mama, I was also very lucky for I was given aplace to live at Papas Home VFN (Volunteer Foundation Nepal ) in Lalitpur,Kathmandu. (NB: VFN Founder/President Lalit Shahi).I am very happy in my new home. I love having so many other brothers and sisters toplay with, and a new mama and papa always there for me.
