Big Sister, Nirmala

A brighter future: the volunteers helping girls stay in school

Despite Nepal making significant strides in education, there are many children who are still being left behind, unable to get the schooling they deserve.

However, 一分六合彩 volunteers, also referred to as "Big Sisters," like Nirmala, are helping to ensure children have the best start in life by highlighting the importance of education to parents.
