Sarmilla is from Simpani village, which is part of the Lamjung district in Nepal. Her father left her mother when Sarmilla was just a baby. His whereabouts are still unknown. A year or so later, her mother eloped with a bus driver and left Sarmilla to be raised by her grandparents. There were eight people living in the house besides Sarmilla, and her grandfather’s small salary was not able to support the family properly. After an application from her grandparents and local police office, Sarmila was rescued by Namaste Children’s House.
Sarmila is doing her +2 study and now preparing for final exam so that she can attend University. She will be supported under IBSH fully for her University study.
