Ram Maya lost her mother in her early childhood. Ever since her father got married second time, she has been living with her maternal grandmother. More than anything, she wants to study as in future she wants to be someone successful, educated and useful to the society. However, due to financial problems, her family is not even able to buy stationery items necessary for her. So, understanding her situation and respecting her dreams, the Trust had decided to give her some helping hand.
Rajkumari Memorial Trust’s Chairperson Ram Bahadur Budha handed over the scholarship to Ram Maya. He hopes that the money, though small in amount, will be helpful in achieving her dreams through education.
The Memorial Trust is established in the remembrance of Budha’s late daughter Rajkumari Budha. The main objective of the trust is to encourage girls to have an education.
