To get to school, she has to walk more than 5 kilometers each way. Panchakanya Secondary School is located in another village, Bhandarkharka. Her father works as labor in Kathmandu in construction, so he has to spend a lot of time away from family. Her mother stays home and looks after household chores, and she also has to work in her family farm. Her father’s income is the main source of the family’s livelihood so things are difficult for her family.
