"I founded SAV school to educate poor family children of the rural area of Nepal seeing some parents unwilling to educate their children and some parents willing to send their children to teach them english. I've been focusing my strategy to bring the poor children to school and educate them in English medium. Parents love to hear their children speaking English. English is our second language. I look forward to sharing and connecting in My eCoach
