“Tashi Sherpa is the manager of the NGO Cunina Nepal and manages the child sponsorship lists in Kathmandu and Phaplu.”

How did you get in touch with Cunina?

I have known Cunina since they started in Nepal in 2001. I have been able to witness the growth of the organization, because both of my parents have been involved with Cunina from the beginning. This made me want to join as well. Meanwhile, I have been working as a manager and coordinator for Cunina Nepal for two years.

Why did you decide to become a volunteer for Cunina?

Doing voluntary work for Cunina and helping people in need is very satisfying to me. Self-satisfaction is the reward of helping and I believe that that is the most beautiful thing there is. After all, you are providing a different (better) future to the less well-off.

What are your tasks and responsibilities?

I work as a correspondent and manager for Cunina Nepal. I keep an eye on the godchildren in Kathmandu and the Soulukhumbu district.

Why is Cunina so important in your community?

Cunina is able to help where the government fails. Cunina does not only provide primary education, but also quality education by letting children take part in multiple extracurricular activities. This does not only motivate them, but it also speeds up the educational process.

Becoming a Cunina godparent is a long-term commitment. You play an important role in the life of your godchild and you see them become a young adult with opportunities.
