This week I'm sharing some photos of the youngsters I encountered on my travels around Nepal. Some had never attended school but worked for their families from an early age, while others were sponsored at primary school by overseas NGOs, and those from more privileged homes went to private schools. Without exception, every one of them met me with a happy beaming smile!
