Tikaram Adhikari is from a very poor family and lives in squalor conditions. His parents are employed by farmers. Tikaram is the eldest of four children and prior to our intervention, was about to leave school to help his family in the fields. However, when we approached the family, they were moved by our words; we made them believe if they send Tikaram to school, he will have a world of his own. Based on these discussions, the family agreed to our funding of Tikaram's education.
