The Long Road To School


Like most students in rural Nepal, Durge Kami is a diligent pupil who tries to listen to his teachers. He differs from his school mates in just one respect, he is 69! At such a ripe old age, he was determined to realise his life’s ambition to complete his education. With no nearby adult learning centres, he has to go to a regular school. Not everyone supported him at first but by doing what he loves he’s become an inspiration for kids and adults alike.
