Children of Nepal orphanage

Aayush’s father left his mother, taking Aayush with him at the age of about six years. Soon his father took up with another woman who treated Aayush badly, expecting him to do all the heavy duties, including carrying the water containers. Aayush he simply wasn’t strong enough to lift. When he could not do so, he cried and she beat him with a stick, usually on the back of his legs. when asked how often this happened and I was stunned by his answer 'Between four and six times a week', he said.
 

Knowing that Aayush was having such problems, his grandfather took him away to live with him but he really didn’t want him, nor did his own second wife. He was made to do a lot of work around the house, but at least he was no longer being beaten. Eventually they asked if Juliette could look after Aayush who was a poor-looking thing who didn’t know his exact age. What she knew was that the first thing they had to buy him was a new pair of shoes, for the front sections of his sandals had disappeared long ago. Soon enough, Aayush moved into the temporary hostel the orphanage currently have and he fitted in well. He was reserved at first, but soon opened up and proved to be very studious. He had been at the hostel for eight weeks when Juliette took the children for a walk around the village and she decided to call in at Aayush’s grandad’s home. She stood in stony silence as he immediately picked up a brush and started sweeping the floor, but absolutely no-one welcomed him, nor even spoke, except to me.
He still has his ‘lazy eye’, though when he is relaxed it is often open more than it used to be. We’ve had it checked and although nothing can be done to correct it as be then he was about eleven, he has no problem with his sight.
Aayush graduated from Year 5 at Gauri School in March of this year, and was first in his class. Now he is at another local school where he can study until Class 8, although we are hoping when the new hostel is built he and the other children can change to a different school (which is currently too far away), where they can continue until Class 10. Aayush has designs on becoming an engineer when an adult. That’s an admirable goal Aayush, let’s hope you achieve your aim!
