“By coming to Pestalozzi, I am able to go to a good school and I can become anything I want to be.  Here we get a housemother who is like our mother, who always helps us in everything.  If we are sick, she takes care of us like our own mother. In my home when I went to school it was very far and here, we get a bus in which we can go and it is not far.  Here our friends teach us words in Tibetan and Nepali and tell us about their cultures. We get a volunteer, who teaches us in our study time.  I am very happy to stay here as it is one of the best NGOs because we don’t have to give money for anything and at home it is very difficult to go to good schools and to learn English.”
