‘I wanted to thank you so much for the incredible scholarship you’ve granted me for the PCL course at KAHS. Your support means the world to me, as it not only lightens my financial load but also fills me with inspiration. I am starting (my) journey as a staff member of PHASE Nepal, and going to serve the health service in remote community in humla (jaira). Your generosity has helped me learn, grow, and serve needy people. Thank you again for believing me . I am committed to work harder and use my knowledge and experience. I will make the most of it’ – Sangita
