Welcome to Aayushma's Blog!

Hey everyone! My name is Aayushma Bastola, and I'm a young Nepali American who really wants to make a positive difference in people's lives. I visit Nepal often, but in the summer of 2017, I visited Nepal for the sole purpose of volunteering. I wanted to give back to the country that had raised my parents and my entire lineage for centuries. I have experienced the culture and beauty of Nepal in bits and pieces by my parents' side, but this summer was the first time I had the chance to see Nepal independently, through my own eyes. Hoste Hainse gave me the opportunity to travel to Sarlahi to visit their schools for the underprivileged children of Nepal. During my visit, I noticed little children squished together on the classroom floors with nothing to sit on or place their books on: no chairs or desks. Upon returning to the US, I thought of how I could help from across the sea, and the idea of the Virginia Room project was born. Raising money in America to furnish the Hoste Hainse school in Nepal brought together my two worlds and heightened my love for volunteering. No one is too young to make a difference in the world, and there really is no better time to start than now. So here is a blog of my experience working with Hoste Hainse to change the lives of children my age living halfway across the world.
