Manju Basnet, a local housewife who has been attending our DEEP Program shared this:

“This is my first time using a laptop, and my body feels the strain, much like after a day in the fields. I’m truly grateful for the computer training opportunity; I was unaware of how to use a laptop effectively, but I am learning new things now. Thank you so much for enlightening me!”


Purnima Shah, a Foundation Scholar and a current Mentor teaching other girls dancing shared her gratitude:

“I am immensely grateful to the foundation for providing me first with a scholarship to continue my education and then a job just when I needed it the most. To be honest, I cannot express in words how much this means to me. Thanks to you, I don’t have to worry and stress out about how to continue my education and what to do next. I want you to know that this is all possible because of your kind intervention. Rukmini, I cannot thank you enough for your help and support!”

Karuna Sunar: One of the entrepreneurial moms we trained through our Global GLOW program.

“We’ve crossed the two lakh (200,000) rupees mark, and with the continuous support we’ve been receiving from the foundation in marketing and guidance, it feels like our earnings could double with each opportunity. We are grateful for the journey and the prospects ahead!”

Jenish Waiba, a student from Panchakanya School talking about the impact of the dental health program:

“I was always taught that it was only necessary for me to brush my teeth on Saturdays, but thanks to the program about oral health, I now know that I should be brushing twice a day. I would not have known this without this program and I am thankful for being a part of it.”

Gita Basnet, our Glow Club mentor spoke about the transformation of Sushma Timalsina after her surgery, which was made possible after our routine check-up program:

“After her surgery, she’s truly transformed—she is so active and confident! These days, she’s diving into every activity with full enthusiasm. It’s amazing to see the positive change. Kudos to her!”

From the entire Rukmini Team in Nepal

“A heartfelt thank you to all our supporters for standing by us continuously and providing us the opportunity to engage in this valuable work. Your unwavering support has made all of this possible, and we truly appreciate it.”

About Roshani Balami

As someone who is always excited to experience and try new things, I was very excited to be joining the Rukmini foundation and be a part of its journey. Before joining the team I only knew a little bit about the full scope of the foundation's programs, so when I joined the foundation as the Technology officer, I thought that my job was to handle technical parts like handling web sites, applications and other related IT tasks. However, as I am now getting fully involved and leading a program like our Digital Education & Empowerment Program, to teach girls and women of all levels about technology, I am amazed by the impact of the foundation and its programs, especially with innovative programs like what we do in terms of promoting and teaching technology. Isn’t it the basic goal of technology to uplift society? I certainly believe it is, and the first step is to increase knowledge and interest about technology and then to provide access. If we want our girls to be advanced enough in technology to be future programmers, we need to start at the basic level, and I am proud to be a part of that. While I am loving teaching my younger sisters, I am also excited about teaching women who are doing continuing education as part of our collaboration with a local Open School. In short, I am loving my new experiences and am excited about the journey for the foundation and for myself.
