There were waves of tragedy that swept the lives of Saraswoti before she came to Namaste Children’s House. Due to lack of treatment and malnutrition, her mother died shortly after giving
birth to her younger sister Nandakali. Their father remarried, but his new wife was mentally ill and the family was not properly cared for by either of them. Their stepmother gave birth to a son, and after a landslide destroyed their property, they were all forced to leave. Their new home was a one room hut which they shared with cattle. They had nothing to eat and were receiving food and clothing from other villagers. As they could not be cared for, their father sent the three oldest sisters, including Saraswoti, to Kathmandu to work. She was working in a hotel when she was rescued by Namaste Children’s House.
Saraswoti is a role model for all of the children at orphanage. She is currently completing class 11 taking science as a major under the support of IBSH. She wants to be a social worker in the future and wants to help other poor children who are having the same problem which she has come through.
