Laxmi Poudel is from a family that has settled in the Banjyang Village of Pharping. Her family is originally from another district called Dhading, but her parents left for Pharping seeking work.
Her father is currently working as a helper in Pharping Sustainable Agricultural Farm, a venture of A School for Community (ASC). Laxmi loves to study and is very happy that her parents do not have to worry about how they will afford her school supplies.
Laxmi is now attending Setidevi School – Sokhel as her family has moved closer to this area. She is already making friends and is looking forward to the year ahead.
