“Empowerment Through Education” — Friends of Himalayan Children

Bibek and his sister Sarmila

Bibek and Sarmila’s parents are both abusive alcoholics. The children were neglected at home and did not attend school. Though neighbours and family members would sometimes care for the children, the majority of the time they were left to fend for themselves.

When the children’s situation came to the attention of FHC, and it was decided that they needed to be cared for and supported to allow them to attend school. The children do not want any contact with their parents. They are thriving with the supportive “family” in the hostel.
