Report from Nepal
Changes over three generations
The Shahi family’s story is one of upward mobility. The widowed Manpura Shahi (75) was fighting for her family’s survival in the fields. Her son Chakra (43) was able to attend a Helvetas animal health course and secure the family’s livelihood. Manpurna’s grandson Govind (17) is now studying to be a veterinary practitioner; his family was able to pay all his fees themselves. This report from Nepal tells a story of real change and progress towards self-reliance.
