Sapana is currently enrolled in fourth grade in Narayani Primary school, Pithauli, Nawalparasi in Nepal.
Sadly for Sapana, her father passed away few years ago leaving three other members of the family behind in pain and poverty. Ever since, Sapana's mother Maya Gurung has been working extra as a labor to feed her children. They have been living in a rented house with annual income of $275 holding expenses of $375 annually. This huge difference in the earning and expenses had put this family's economic condition way below the poverty line.
