Love for Home & Family

March 20, 2017

“I am 21 years old and I have dreams. Recently, I returned from Turkey after three years, working as a housemaid. Those three years taught me things that no school can. It taught me the importance of home and family. Once I returned, I started taking care of our family-run hotel here in my village. Because I had the opportunity to go to school in Kathmandu, I also wanted the same for my brother and sister. They have been looking after the hotel in my absence. So it is my turn now. I want my brother and sister to pursue further studies and see the world outside of home, like I have. I think everyone should receive equal opportunity in a family. Today, I am happy working here. I have realised that there is money to be made in this place. I also run a small shop here which is doing good and guests like yourself who stay at the hotel also seem happy with the services. But eventually, I want to become a trekking guide. That is one of my dreams and I am working towards that. I am only 21 years old but I know of life. I know that if you set out to do something with all your heart, eventually it will happen.” (Pemba Doma Sherpa, Sekhathum, Taplejung)

Charitable donations are essential to the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival. Without generous, sustained support, the festival would be unable to help talented young artists from Hawai’i attend the festival each July in Waimea. Please help us give the gift of a musical career to a young artist. (Note: The Hawaii Performing Arts Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization; donations are tax exempt.)
