'A face that glows with satisfaction'. Teacher Nima Rajbhandari’s face always glows with satisfaction who has been teaching passionately at Shanti Siksha Sadan since the last 12 years. She studied in a government school herself. After SLC, she had to work to support her family and that obligation introduced her to teaching. In the beginning, it was solely to earn money but slowly teaching gripped her and made her addicted to it. She graduated in economics and teaches the same in the school.
When she enters the classroom with a smile on her face and a hello in the form of 'good morning everybody', the students cheer up. It makes her day. 42 years old teacher has been living this treasure of a life every single day.
""My students are from the families who are from a very low income bracket or are almost at a point of destitution. Their parents are street vendors, rickshaw drivers, maids and daily wage labors. It makes it worse when they cannot even afford a square meal despite working day and night. For them, meal is the first priority and it should be! Children's education comes later. But even in this scenario, they have been sending their children to the school and I really appreciate that instead of using children for income-activities, the parents are sending them to school.
I had been helping the students without stationary by providing it myself, but I could not help all those in need. When I found KG, I have been relieved. I found with KG I could help a lot more children than the ones in my classroom. I am always encouraging other teachers to participate with KG.""
