Surakshya came home to a Hope’s Promise family in October 2010. She is thriving with her three sisters and house parents. She is smart! Surakshya dreams of
becoming a doctor when she grows up. Surakshya was born in Nepal, one of the least developed nations in the world. Many children lose their parents to death or incapacitation from the ravages of poverty. Of Nepal’s total population of 28.5 million, an estimated one million children are orphaned and approximately 25,000 live in orphanages. Orphans in Nepal are especially vulnerable to child labor, trafficking, and child marriage.
