Bishol is a very recent addition to our Rising Lotus family. Most children his age are in 3rd or 4th grade, however, Bishol is in what they call, LKG, which would be considered lower kindergarten or preschool. Unfortunately, before arriving at Rising Lotus, Bishol never attended school. His family simply could not afford for him to go.
His lack of age-level education makes it very challenging for him to keep up. He is still just learning to master his alphabet. Plus, he also understands almost no English at all yet. But we have total faith in Bishol and know that with patience, practice and time, he’ll catch up.
His hard background has made him a bit of a hard kid with a bit of a tough-guy attitude. All the more reason that working with him to catch him up at school (so he doesn’t have to feel defensive about being behind or feeling his options are limited). We’ve noticed though, that as we get to know him, he is lightening up, which we are happy to see reflecting more and more in his photos now.
Volunteer Metha Skylab told us that during his visit at Rising Lotus, Bishol was a bit stand-offish at first, but once Bishol let his guard down, he became one of Metha’s favorite kids to photograph.
It’s a small start, but a very hopeful one.
