Pushpa Bhujel : From House Keeper to pre School teacher and Tourist Guide

Pushpa Bhujel attended the English speaking course at Awake and Shine, when she was a student at the local high school. She picked up some English, but could not converse. After finishing her class 10, she joined as a housekeeping assistant looking after the awake and Shine Guest Room.

She was appointed Assistant teacher in the preschool in 2011, and started assisting Charles Lepcha in guiding International tourist. She improved her expression and devised walking circuits showcasing local lifestyles, which are popular with tourists. Since 2013 she has been appointed as a regular guide. In addition she is running the handicraft club. Today Pushpa is a confident being capable of cooking, house keeping, teaching and acting as a tourist guide. As a result her income has improved four fold.
