Purnamaya is 16 years old and is currently enrolled in 6th grade. She is the eldest one among our kids and goes to Shree Pragati Lower Secondary School.
Her father Mr. Man Bahadur Khatri and mother Ms. Kamala Khatri are both physically challenged facing hearing impairment. Because of the financial challenges her family was facing, she couldn't go to school until she was 10 years old. She comes from a family of 7 including her parents, grandmother, her uncle and aunts, and her cousin. Due to very less income with huge number of family members, she almost had to drop out of school and stay home again to take care of her parents. With the help of ProtectKidsDream's scholarship and other basic needs being provided, she has been able to continue with her study.
