Palmu was seven years old and lived with her grandparents to be able to go to school.
Cunina gave us the opportunity to visit Palmu during an immersion trip and we took it with both hands. In Nepal, we were received as gods. The inhabitants looked at us as if God himself sent us to help them. We were showered with garlands and scarfs and we were also given the inevitable red tika on our forehead. We were told that Nepalese people rarely show emotions, but when we met Palmu she came running at us with open arms.
