Juna and Jamuna are sisters. Their mother passed away in 2015, a year before we brought them to SCIF @ Volunteer Work Nepal. She fell down from a hill and died from the injury. Their father then remarried, and moved into his new wife’s home.
Unwilling to bring children from his previous marriage with him, he left Juna and Jamuna with their auntie who did next to nothing in caring for them. They were not sent to school at all, hence they only began their formal education when we took them into our home.
Jamuna is a child with strong yet sensitive personality. She will fight tooth and nail for her “adopted” siblings in the orphanage, and save her sweets and chocolates to divide it with everyone. Yet at the same time, she can be brought to tears in certain circumstances, like when she feels left out.
She is one of the sweetest children here, and her favourite hobbies include dancing and craftwork. She can create flowers from tissue paper, roses from discarded colour paper, and make a beautiful tulip if you give her a decent piece of paper.
Jamuna is doing well in her studies now, and absolutely loves going to school and excelling in her studies. She is a very bright student, and we have high hopes for her future.
Would you like to visit her? 🙂 If yes, visit us at SCIF @ Volunteer Work Nepal. We have a couple of Volunteer packages, otherwise you can make the most of your time here by visiting some of Nepal’s most popular landmarks at the same time with these travel packages, where 100% of the profits will go to the orphanage!
