KATHMANDU, Aug 27: Former justice at Supreme Court, Balaram KC has provided Rs. 25,000 to support Puja Khatri’s education.
Khatri, a resident of Myagdi-6 had written a painful letter to the school’s principal saying that she could no longer continue her studies because she couldn’t afford to buy school essentials and “go to school on an empty stomach.”
Since the story of Puja's plight appeared in Republica, people from inside and outside the country have started initiatives to help. The Gandaki Province chapter of the Federation of Nepali Journalists is among organizations that have provided some financial aid to the Khatri family.
