FAMILY STRENTHENING – November 1 2023 The power of resilience and love of a father Kishor's life has been a journey filled with both triumphs and challenges. But nothing matters more to him than his daughter, Karishma* (name changed), who has been the source of his joy and the reason for his daily smile. Despite not completing his own education, Kishor has always been determined to provide his daughter with a bright future. He encourages her to pursue her dreams and excel in her studies. But life took a tragic turn for Kishor when he met with a bike accident and injured his leg, making it difficult for him to walk properly. Despite these setbacks, Kishor never lost his positive attitude and gratitude for his daughter's love and affection, which gave him the strength to persevere. Kishor decided to start a mobile phone repairing shop after completing a mobile repairing course at the SOS vocational training centre Pokhara. With support from the family strengthening programme of SOS Children’s Village Kavre, he was able to start his business, attracting around 20-30 customers per day in the market area and makes profit of around Rs15000- 20000 every month. Karishma admires her father for his kind nature, cooking skills, and the loving environment he created for her. She aspires to become a nurse; a dream fully supported by her father. Together, they face the world with Kishor's love for his daughter always being the driving force in his life.
