“Empowerment Through Education” — Friends of Himalayan Children

Chiring – 12 year old orphan


Chiring is twelve years old and came to the hostel after an Austrian couple met her in a remote village. She was not attending school and was living with a distant relative who was using her as a farm worker.

She now attends school every day despite having a learning disability. Chiring has never spoken about her parents. We know that they have passed away but unsure about the circumstances. Sadly, her story is far from unique.

Chiring always has a bright smile on her face!
