One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There was this jolly and energetic 14 year old boy working as a helper in a guest house we stayed in Kathmandu, Nepal.

I saw his energy and his enthusiasm to learn when I woke up for toilet at 2 am. He was reading in the staff room from a collection of old books he had including some English language books. Had a hearty talk with him about every part of his life all night. Found out he was orphan. Spent almost half of my remaining money to get him some books of his choice & decent clothes the same day before leaving.
