Date of birth : 09/12/2013
Father : Lhakpa TAMANG
Mother : Sonam TAMANG
Village of origin : Gongang, Rasuwa
Date of arrival at the Sahayogi Foundation : If we can find a sponsor and/or enough donors, the Sahayogi Foundation would be able to welcome him in 2018.
Sonam TAMANG has known Vijay ’s family for a long time. At every Trek on the Tamang Heritage Trail, he meets the parents of the little boy. Very poor, they are both farmers. They tried to take over a business in Gongang (management of a tea room / guesthouse), but without success. The earthquake of 2015 destroyed their house and they now live in a tent, in difficult economic conditions. With no ressources, they encounter many difficulties to support the needs of the family. They would very much like to be able to send their children to school, but they cannot support the costs of this project. Education is not a priority.
Since May 2017, the Sahayogi Foundation has welcomed Bimala TAMANG, Vijay’s big sister. Sponsored, she joined Katmandou to be housed and educated. The Foundation would like henceforth to welcome Vijay, who is looking forward to joining his sister, in order to be able to go to school and have a better future.
