Rinu and Dev’s story began in the remote Khairang area of Nepal. After their mother abandoned them and losing their father to alcoholism, Rinu found herself caring for Dev alone, frightened and selling alcohol to get by. They were vulnerable, so we welcomed them into our care motivated to follow Jesus’ example to care for the most at risk in society.
Sunita lives in the Khairang, Nepal. She came to the Khairang with her mother and they have made their home near the Stand by Me Bethany School to allow Sunita the chance of an education.
Neesha's situation is similar to many families in the Khairang and like many children, Neesha never had the chance to go to school. Today, Neesha attends the Khairang Bethany School and walks every day with one of her sisters.
For parents who fear that their daughters could marry at an early age, the Khairang Bethany School is a voice of hope.
Stand by... almost there...
