Good morning! It's time to let you meet another one of our scholars! We hope that everyone has enjoyed getting an inside look into the lives of the young women that The Learning Tea program has been investing in. Seeing the smiles on our scholars faces is what makes all of our hard work so meaningful to us. They inspire us every day. The program is still growing and we hope that we can continue to enable more young women in Darjeeling to pursue their educations. This week's scholar is Lakmi.
