Shree is good student and performs well in school, but inside, he has an artist’s soul. He loves to draw and his artwork is quite good. Volunteer Metha Skylab, while visiting Rising Lotus, thought that Shree had traced a drawing because the skill level was so proficient. Metha happily confessed his misassumption and in return, Shree offered to make a special drawing just for Metha … a sweet image of Metha climbing Mt. Everest.

Artistic expression is hard to come by for many children in Nepal, as the schools focus mostly on English and Math. Therefore we try our hardest to keep a steady supply of at least the most basic art supplies on hand for the children at Rising Lotus. After all in a globally connected, digital world, Shree’s artistic talent could provide a viable employment opportunity for him some day in art and design. But just as important to us, is continuing to foster the JOY that artistic expression brings to him now.
