Congratulations to the success and hard work of all our wonderful graduates! 
After trading book bags and final exams for facemasks and emergency shelters due to the earthquakes that devastated Nepal in April, now, nearly three months later, eleven of our scholars are making the transition from students to professionals.
At a time of such profound loss and hardship, not one of these students could have been faulted for stumbling in their success, and yet, aided by the power of encouragement, compassion, financial support, and grief counseling, these eleven amazing young women have only gotten stronger. They offered their hearts and skills to the disaster relief efforts of their country and turned their grief into an uncompromising pursuit of their own potential. Just as the investment made by the BMKF community in them, our scholars have invested in themselves and their futures.

It seems like no better time to celebrate the largest graduating group of scholars since the founding of Bo M. Karlsson Foundation, than when Nepal needs smart, educated, and motivated young women the most.

Back in April, the village of Yangit Sherpa, one of our outstanding scholars graduating this year (Business Studies), experienced severe damage during the earthquake. Despite the devastation this caused, she continued her preparations for the delayed final exams, bolstered by the transformative support of the disaster relief that went toward rebuilding her home. Of the exam she recently took, Yangit said: 

“I am very much happy after giving the board exam of my third year bachelor. The exam passed nicely so I am hoping for good results. I have been so lucky and am always grateful to get your full support. Thank you very much and special thanks to my sponsor Leslie Lippi.”
