More Info

I met Luni while traveling to Nepal as an English volunteer. Luni was my house sister. With her brilliant smile, quirky personality and funky style, we became fast friends. As I learned more about Luni and her life, I discovered she walks an hour each day to her office. She works for a NGO clinic providing medical testing for local residents. Most of her paycheck helps her family pay rent. She’s dreamed of becoming a doctor but has viewed it as just that — a distant dream.

After some prodding and a bit of encouragement, Luni was convinced to take the entrance examination for graduate study. She did awesome (of course), earning entrance to a Tribhuvan University affiliated program. She hopes to complete higher education in Microbiology. Luni is well on her way. And we can help.

For $2,000 (what most of us would be lucky to spend on one semester tuition), we can cover her entire degree. Right, we can give Luni a scholarship, something that is next to impossible to receive from the Nepali government, and provide full tution for her program.

You may not know Luni, but I do — and I can’t think of a more deserving student for such an opportunity. Thank you for your help. And for believing that small acts of kindness can change the world.
