Paul’s Story: Paul's father worked as a sherpa but had to quit when he became quite ill with HIV and tuberculosis infections. Because of this, no one will give him a job. Paul's mother is "dumb" and also refused work. Both parents are illiterate. Added to this, their small humble hut was destroyed by the April 2016 earthquake. This family of 7 suffer immensely. Paul would love to go to school, but his family can not even afford to feed him.
