WORLD RELIEF: Refugee & Immigration Services


Pabi is a 15-year-old student poised for a bright future. As a freshman, she just received a full college
scholarship. But Pabi’s past wasn’t as bright as her future is now. In 2010, when she was just in 5th

grade, Pabi and
her family fled Nepal as conditions in Bhutan became exceedingly dangerous. They came to the U.S. and were
resettled by World Relief. Pabi relied on older Nepali friends at her new school to help her acclimate to her new life.
She also started attending World Relief’s after school program at a local partner church. And now, Pabi has hope that
her big dreams for her future are possible.
