Shankar, a 13 year old boy came on the street all the way from Surkhet (a town in Far Western Region) in 2009. Despite he loved his family members, he left his home because he could not bear the physical punishment given by his father, a retired army personnel. The main reason for the punishment was to improve his studies as he was studying in an English medium school. He stayed at JSP for a couple of months and was actively involved in daily activities. He also got micro business coaching at JSP and started a street business in the bus park. He earned a good amount of money (around NPR 3000) which he deposited in the CDK. Slowly, he felt the need of the family and started getting into touch with his mother. One day he decided to return home. So, he withdrew all his savings and bought new clothes, MP3 and a guitar before he left for home. Now, he has re-joined the school and we found his wonderful progress during our follow up.
