Sundaraijal Children's Home

Nurse

My name is Binita, my brother is Bikram and my sister is Bibisha. My mother has left us and went with another husband. So my father stayed with the four of us totally alone. For my father was really difficult to take care of us by himself and to do everything in the household, so I took the place of my mother and I started doing the dishes, washing clothes and helping to clean the house. With only 7 years old I was also taking care of my brother and sister all the time. Helping them with everything: put on the clothes, wash them, cam the hair and so on.

My name is Binita, my brother is Bikram and my sister is Bibisha. My mother has left us and went with another husband. So my father stayed with the four of us totally alone. For my father was really difficult to take care of us by himself and to do everything in the household, so I took the place of my mother and I started doing the dishes, washing clothes and helping to clean the house. With only 7 years old I was also taking care of my brother and sister all the time. Helping them with everything: put on the clothes, wash them, cam the hair and so on.

Our life conditions were really poor, we lived in a mud house sharing only one room between the five of us. My father sometimes was able to get a job, but it was a casual one, and money was not enough for paying food or education and he was also into drinking, reason why sometime he use to beat us with no apparently reason.

Mr. Ram Hari saw my brother and sister begin in the Boudha Stupa and visit our house to see the conditions where we were living in. After this he decide to take the three of us to Sundarijal Children's home. My older brother stayed with my dad.

I like to to be in the Sundarijal very much. Here I can be a child again, I can play with other kids of my same age. I also have the chance to go to school and have a bed, food and clothes to wear. Here I feel really safe and happy because I have attention and love of the caretakers. I'm no longer responsible of taking care of my brother and sister because they live in the house as well. Binita's father died recently and her brother is living his own life, now her family is here in Sundarijal with all the children and caretakers.

Binita has been here for five years now, and you can see what a nice and kind girl she is. You will never see her without smiling. Right now she is going through class 6 and is one of the best students there. She is really discipline and obedient, she says that her favorite subjects are social and science.

With 14 years old this teenager is always being part of any program, whenever there is a dancing show she is there being part of it and putting a lot of effort to learn new movements. She is also part of the taekwondo lessons that they have on saturday's morning. Also she is into drawing and painting and doing any kind of manual arts. Sports are part of her hobbies, Badmington is one of her favorites.

She is such a nice and kind girl that you will always see her with friends, having fun and making any kind of game to spent a good time.
