The slow road to school

文字-A A +A

Taiwan’s International Cultural Educational Foundation recently traveled abroad to visit children participating in its Nepal Study Assistance Program. While in Nepal, members of the foundation’s team met a young girl called Ampasi who needs to leave home before dawn and walk 2.5 hours to school each day – a 5-hour round trip.  

  

Actually, a private school bus service operates nearby which costs 800 rupees a month, roughly $300NT. However, due to the economic situation of Ampasi’s family,she is unable to afford the bus fee and must rely on her own two legs, step-by-step traversing the long road to school each day.  

 

Fortunately, neither the long distance to school nor the difficulties she must traverse along the way have been enough to break Ampasi’s unshakeable determination to gain an education.

 

以下為中英文對照

台灣的環宇基金會,前往尼泊爾考察助學計畫所贊助的孩童。其中住在尼泊爾吉瑞山區小朋友安帕熙,天還沒亮就得準備出門,因為他們每天清晨得花兩個半小時,徒步山路到學校。

   其實附近是有私人校車的,但一個月須要800盧比,大約300元台幣的花費,依安帕熙家中的經濟情況,是不允許也無力負荷的,所以他只能靠雙腿,
一步一步踏上漫漫求學路。

  

但是安帕熙沒有被環境打敗、向環境低頭,再遠的距離,再艱難的道路都阻礙不了他想要求學的決心!
