Nepal, SARA Ministries
In Nepal, the lockdown began in March, suspending all school programs. All of the children were required to stay in the home, and while restrictions have loosened slightly, parks and schools remain closed.
We shared this need during a live webinar. One generous family came forward to purchase internet, five computers, two televisions, and a projector allowing all 35 kids enough access to do their homework and to view their classes in groups according to their age. The response of the kids has been pure joy!
Hanna, Tej’s sister and the leader of the girls’ home, expressed her appreciation. “I thank God, and I want to thank you for providing the televisions and computers. The children are so excited,” she shared, “I also see their progress already - some of them didn’t even know how to open the computer,” Hanna giggled.
Pastor Tej also shared his excitement. “Most of the children cannot type. Now, they are learning to type and use Microsoft Word and Excel. Many children living outside of the home wouldn’t have this access, so this is a real blessing for us,” he shared.
“I go to the boys’ house twice a week and support them in their devotions and guide them and support them in their online learning,” Hanna shared. “They share their problems with me, and I listen.”
