Man Of Hope

Dhana Bhadur Pandey, a resident of Ramechaap, has been working as a potter since 1990 in the Kathmandu Valley, to make his living.

Everybody calls him ‘Mama’ – a nickname given by his potter buddies. Mama first came to Kathmandu searching for work – to fulfill the basic needs of his family. Lacking any education, he had to start as a potter, delivering goods from one place to another. Almost 20 years of strapping the burden on his forehead and carrying loads on his back, he now gets Rs100 per job and earns Rs300 to 500 per day on days when the business is good.

He’s got a family of five and he’s the only one earning. Amazingly, he’s been able to send both of his daughter and son to a good boarding school. Recently, his son appeared for the SLC exams. Quite an achievement for Mama and his family.

Mama’s wife is back home in Ramechaap and he usually goes there in a month to meet his wife and to look after the farming.

Working day in and night in, he brings light of hope and joy to his family.

  1. Everybody can reach his goal or target, you only have to believe in it and work for it. If you don’t try you’ll always loose!!!
