PERSONAL HISTORY: We know very little about Anukaran’s history. In 2007, he was found by a small orphanage in the countryside that did not have space for him and sent him to Balmandir. When he was found along with another girl, he knew nothing to tell the police other than his name. In 2012, HCC was approached and asked to support, and we were happy to add him to our family.
WHAT MAKES ME SPECIAL? Anukaran, which means “simulation” in Nepali, is a bright boy. Although he is a little shy around adults, he is playful and a leader among his friends. He loves to study science at school, and his science teacher is his favorite. Anukaran is now learning about the parts of the body, which he likes a lot. He has 125 special merits at school which he gets for participation and hard work. After 100, he gets a prize.
