When visiting Nepal in 2014 both were greatly impressed by the natural warmth, friendliness, culture and hospitality of the Nepalese people and the beauty and grandeur of their country. Visiting the Shree Jala Kanya Parimaki Primary School and Village was a highlight of their trip that led to the realization that much was required to improve the school facilities and the standard of education. Becoming involved in the Sharmilla Foundation is a small but very rewarding step in providing opportunities for the children of Nepal to develop to their fullest potential
