Thanks to GlobeMed at Tufts from Nepal

Click here to hear Ashma Baruwal, Nyaya's Associate Director of Community Health, discuss the impact of the partnership between GlobeMed at Tufts and Nyaya Health.

Below is a picture of one of the new community health worker leaders hired as part of the expansion of the program that GlobeMed at Tufts funded. Lalita Khadka lives in Gajra, a community of over 1900 people who live almost 2 hours from Bayalpata Hospital.

Lalita Khadka became a CHWL to serve the needy people in her community – to counsel those who are in dire need and advise them to go to the hospital. She has a 7 year old son, Ashish, in kindergarten and an 8 year old daughter, Akriti, in 1st grade. Her husband is a farmer. Lalita enjoys studying books, reading newspapers, and writing stories. She would like to study English and to learn how to use a computer.
