Doma has completed the last thing she must do to study at Hampshire College.
Getting her student visa was the last hurdle before the next stage of the amazing journey she and her mom have worked for so long and so hard.
Because life in Nepal is very hard, Nepali students must convince our consular staff that they have a specific and worthwhile reason to come here instead of continuing their education in Nepal, and that they have a specific, compelling aspiration for which they will return to Nepal after college. Doma has that strong reason and aspiration.
Our consular officer questioned Doma, verified those things and with a big smile told her, ” I am more than happy to grant your visa. Welcome to the USA!”
Doma can now travel here anytime after July 23rd, thirty days before she starts at Hampshire College. Her accomplishment, so extraordinary for a young woman from a low-caste poor background, is being celebrated at this moment by150 friends, family and neighbors.
Let us now complete what we must do.
Maybe my previous post made it sound like a done deal, that there’s no need for more donations? Doma will get those donations, I am committed to that, but I need YOU to make them!
Doma needs only ten more donations of the average size given so far, or just a few more $100 donations from around double that number.
Please don’t wait for someone else. Please don’t wait until you have a spare moment. Be the first to take out your credit card and click here right now. It will take you and just a few others only one minute to enable Doma to transform her entire life.
