Daily Recess

Description

During recess at their school in Nepal, Muskan Nepali, 12, and her best friend Ashmita like to play Gatta, a game like jacks, but played with stones.

"It is played with 5 stones. Four stones are left on the floor, then one stone is thrown in the air with one hand and with the other hand we need to pick up one stone from the floor before the other stone comes down, we have to keep repeating it till you have all the stones in your hand," she says.

For Muskan, apart from playing with her friends, the best thing about school is that she gets to study.

"I like to read and write. My favorite subject is science. I want to be a doctor. Education is important in my life because I want to be successful and independent when I grow up," she says.

No one understands the value of an education more than Muskan’s mother, Geeta Nepali, who dropped out early.

"I had desires of becoming a teacher but due to the death of my mother I dropped out in Grade 12. I don’t want that for my children. I want them to study," says Geeta.
