Sponsorship can transform lives

This is what one Nepalese student nurse says about the sponsorship she received from HELP:

“Its been very long since the last time i wrote to you. I apologize for the inconvenience but i am writing to you today to share you about my recent progress. Today its the first day of our Nepali new year 2071 and i wish you a very happy new year as well. I pray for the best of health, success and wealth to you and your family.

Its been a year that i have got a nursing registration and been working as a heamodialysis nurse in the Asia’s biggest haemodialysis center  called National Kidney Center and i am glad to inform you that within a short time i have managed to become one of the senior haemodialysis nurses in our center. Occasionally i visit other hospitals to do haemodialysis as well. I am actively involved in research program and health camps organized and supported by National Kidney Center.

Secondly, i took Acupressure training which is a ancient healing method involving the use of pressure to cure various disease within an individual and now am a certified acupressure therapist here in Nepal.

Additionally, on December 2012 i gave my IELTS ( International English Language Testing System) and managed to score 7.5 . I managed to be among the 5% test takers from Nepal that scored 7.5 on that year.
With this score i got lots of admission offers from top 10 universities from Australia and even managed to get good amount of scholarships for my bachelors of nursing program. Due to this score i was asked to work as counselor in various educational consultancies here in Nepal and was even offered some jobs as IELTS instructor in some institutions.

At present I am applying for state universities in U.S.A. for my bachelors of nursing programs as the U.S.A. universities are much cheaper as compared to Australian Universities.

I have already applied to more than 50 universities and am hoping to get admissions from one of  these universities.

With all of these achievements besides me, i look back and think that these would not have been possible without you and your generosity. Its you who has helped me become someone who i had never been dream t of. Its the willingness of people like you that has eased our lives and made us believe that dreams do come true. You truly have been an angle to me. I and my entire family are very thankful for your kindness.

Thank-you very much.

Yours Sincerely
Bandana Adhikari”

HELP is rare for an organisation offering volunteer teaching in that it puts the needs of the local people before the desires of the western person wanting ‘the experience’.
