“Empowerment Through Education” — Friends of Himalayan Children

Bibi Maya Tamang (Teaching in Batase Village)

Bibi Maya Tamang

20 year old Bibi Maya Tamang was employed by FHC in 2012 after it was decided to start a prep class at the school. Bibi Maya is from Batase village. She is one of seven girls who graduated from high school in 2010.

Bibi Maya lives with her family in the village, and all of her siblings attend Batase school. Despite being younger than some of her students, she acts as an inspiration to the girls. She is visible evidence for the younger girls that once they complete high school there will be real opportunities available to them.

Bibi Maya is teaching under difficult conditions. A lack of resources contribute to the difficulty of teaching at Batase School, something that FHC tries hard to address. As ever, more resources and money are needed to support young teachers like Bibi.
