Like The Resilient Nepali People, A Candle Burns Despite Rain From Mother Nature

Based on the theme of “We Will Rise Again,” for the betterment of Nepal, fellows of the Gaky’s Light Fellowship Program held a ceremony in Pokhara, Nepal on Tuesday. The students are first generation literate youth working under the guidance of the non-profit EVA Nepal. Some also are writers and photographers for Youth Journalism International. They sang a song based on “Rise Nepali.” Despite the rain, this candle lit for the ceremony continued to burn until the end of the program. (Photo by Nischal Kharel/YJI)
