Here, AWON delighted to share a 10 year old girl, Priyenka Devkota. Her family is from Jumla, Nepal. However, she lives in London, United Kingdom with her family. She studies in grade five Rathfern Primary School. She loves her school life and is a active Brownie (Girls scout). Her hobbies include swimming, figure skating, skiing reading, travelling and playing piano. She says, in many ways she has been fortunate in life, like having loving parents and a little sister, a school I likes, having a roof over head, having opportunities to take part in swimming, skating, music and travelling. But in other places like in Nepal there are a lot of children who are less lucky. They can’t afford to go to school and do not have access to education and basic needs of everyday life. In 2007, she had visited Jumla with her family and saw several forms of misfortune, though she touched by children; they are busy in taking care of their young siblings, assisting their parents at farm, forests. They are living without having full stomach, no electricity, no computers and so on. Then that day, she has decided to join in hands with Action Works Nepal by raising funds from her 10th birthday party.
Like Prinyenka, any of you welcome to join during your wedding and death anniversaries, during festivals or simply organize a fund raising lunch/dinner or you can organize lottery, or bike riding, running, or anything.
AWON is always thankful and grateful with Priyenka and others who devoted their energy since childhood and creating a peaceful and justful culture for next generation.
