How long have you been with LSF?
I have been with LSF since 2008.
Describe your role here and a typical day for you.
I am an Administrative Assistant and also the LSF Librarian. The day after letter writing day I am very busy. I keep records of all the books that the girls take and return. I read letters, print the envelope for Sponsors to send letters to them, and keep records of LDSF (Little Daughters Saving Fund).
What inspired you to work for LSF?
Mostly girls in in the Terai region of Nepal (plains) have no opportunity to go to school. LSF is providing education and support to girls. This is why I am so inspired to work with LSF.
What do you enjoy most about working for LSF?
I love the day of letter writing most because the girls come to the library and take books and bring back their reviews. I enjoy seeing their english and knowledge improve through this.
Can you tell us the most rewarding moments with the little sisters from your time at LSF?
If some of our little sister are distracted from her life path of studies due to the family and other social situation, LSF/E4E counsels her and her family and helps them continue to go to school, study well with good marks, and I think these moments are the most rewarding moment at LSF.
