De Kinderen

Brief vanNedup augustus 2022

Dear All,

Greetings from Sikkim. I write this letter to thank you and at the same time update you about my progress and my future plans. As I had written earlier, it gives me great joy to inform you that I have completed my Masters in Sociology from Sikkim University last year. I am presently pursuing my B.Ed from Archarya Nagarjuna University, Andhra Pradesh and is expected to complete it by the end of next year. Barbara and Peter have been supporting me throughout and are happy to extend their support as long as I want to study. I want to extend my sincere thanks to both of them for their immense support.

I hope you are in good health. I am fine here too. Honestly, I am very excited to write to you. It is all because of your effort and contribution in supporting the students of Sikkim Himalayan Academy that has helped me to reach this far. The journey of so many years since I started in 2003, little did I know that I would come so far. My family had also not imagined that I would come this far. At present my family members including relatives, well-wishers are also very proud of me for my accomplishments in my studies. They all are delighted, excited and hopeful that I will get a job soon. It is indeed a proud moment for me as well as I am the only member from the entire family tree who has attained post-graduation.  It is all because of your hard work, effort, time, contribution, dreams and financial support that has helped me and many others in achieving our dreams. If it wasn’t your effort and dream in sponsoring SHA, our dreams would have not been possible.

In a few days’ time, we will be celebrating teachers day in India. I would like to wish you all a Happy Teachers Day. Your contribution to the students of Sikkim is immense. It is through your platform many of us got an opportunity to study. Your vision and contribution to the students of Sikkim cannot be forgotten and it has encouraged me to contribute to the society someday. Thank you for your generosity and support. Surely, I would work hard and eventually give something back to the future students like myself.

At present, I am in SHA after my first semester examination. I have been helping SHA for the past few months now with a break of one month in between. It is indeed exciting to be in SHA recollecting my childhood days with many of you, teachers and volunteers around the world. I talk to present students about my experience in SHA and how that has made the difference in my life. I try my best to guide them in all spheres. After prayers I share my stories with them recollecting my days in SHA and how I had my best childhood days. I indeed had a memorable day in the presence of volunteers, teachers and Trust members. I try my best to make them happy and their childhood memorable so that when they grow up they will look back and say that they had the best days. During classes I teach Social Studies and General Knowledge to class 4 and 5. I help class 3 with their Science. I guide them in playing different kinds of sports. I am indeed having a great time. With all this I have time for my studies and assignments including time to sit for some of the competitive examinations for different government jobs.

I will be completing my B.Ed by the end of next year and till then I will be engaged in my studies. I will be applying for different jobs as well. Once I complete my B.Ed I will be fully qualified to be a teacher till high secondary level and hopefully I will get a job after that. I will be looking for different jobs as well.

As I said earlier, I wouldn’t have reached this point, where I stand now without your generosity in supporting my journey through SHA, DGH and colleges. So once again I would like to thank you and express how grateful I am for having this opportunity. I hope I was up to your expectation and did not disappoint you at any phase. I will work hard and someday I will help others as you all did. I will update you all about my future events. Take care and stay safe. Looking forward to meeting you all soon.

With Love and Prayers,

Brief van Chun Chung en Sangdup juni 2022

Hello maam,

I hope you are doing well. Even iam doing well here and gave my practical exam and viva on 4th of July and iam positive about it cause I know I did pretty well. And my theoretical exams will start from July 15th and will end on 9th August. And recently I hosted a farewell program for our senior and there were so many people. I had this fear of speaking in public since past few years but I did well and I gained my confidence back and iam grateful for everything. 

Love chung chung 



Hello maam,

You and rest of the sponsors help a lot of children who doesn't have what you all provide so It's a lot of support and it means a lot especially to me. So just to let you know that I don't just see you as a person helping me financially but I see you as a family too.From you all I learn that if we can and want we can help anyone from anywhere and we don't have to be a family( blood related) for that. And some day in the future I wanna help too just the way you do. 

Loads of love and respect

Dear mom

Hope you are doing well. We are also fine here. Children summer vacation started so I was

supposed to go to school on 14th June to pick them but could not go as road was blocked at our place due to continuous rain, so I send my brother from Gangtok to pick them from school and dropped Pem Diki, Tumyang and Nitesh to Jorethang, Sonam Palden and Lhaki at Gangtok. School will reopen on 29th June that time I will go myself and let you know how children are doing.

Taxi fare from Gangtok to school 4000.

School to Jorethang and to Gangtok Rs 4500.

Love Sangdup.
