Info

Mina is a shy 11 year old with strikingly beautiful eyes. Her favourite subject is Nepali. She walks half an hour each way to get to her school in the Sindhuli Valley each day.

“I had no idea there was going to be an earthquake. When it happened, I was working in a maize field with my grandparents, pulling crops out of the ground. I was terrified but I didn’t cry. After the earthquake, I couldn’t go to school for 3 days. I was bit worried when the I saw the school was damaged, that the earthquake would happen again. Not that they are rebuilding the school it is wonderful. I like coming to school. I want to be a teacher when I am older.”
