Govinda is a 17 year old ex-street boy from Narayangarh (a city in central region of Nepal). His father is a labourer and he has a step mother. Becuase of the quarrels and violence in his home, the little boy fled from his home and joined the streets of Pokhara. Not surprisingly, he also indulged himself in substances and other narcotics. One day the outreach workers brought him to JSP. Because of his positive learning attitude, he was referred to another organization where he studied up to class 6. Finally he returned to his family but he came back to street life. JSP provided proper counseling and arranged an On the Job Training (OJT) for him  in an Automobile Workshop  where he learnt car and motorcycle servicing skills. During his training period, he used the night shelter and midway home facilities at JSP. Because of his good performance, the job provider increased his salary from NPR 3000 to NPR 5000. Now he lives independently in a rented room. He has also developed  a good relationship with his parents and is providing some financial support to them.
