At CHOICE we believe in dreaming big. Ending poverty seems like an impossible task. However, when armed with a vision and access to a network and resources, we believe that ANYTHING is possible. Take Ram for example. He grew up in the tiny village of Dhuseni, Nepal. Faced with a severe shortage of opportunity, he left and learned computer and electronic maintenance skills by working in Kathmandu. When Ram wanted to return to Dhuseni, he was unsure if and how his newfound skill set could be put to use. So he approached CHOICE for support.
He received a small loan and was able to set up a thriving computer training and electronic repair center. Teachers, school children and others in the community are now learning computer skills and are able to buy and repair their own electronic items with his help!
What first began as Ram’s ambition to return and serve his community is now an evolving desire to push the limits of possibility in his village. He is a mentor to others and has become a key element in shaping his family and friend’s vision for the future. He thanks CHOICE for our support in helping his vision materialize. We thank you for believing in us to make the impossible possible!
