I am Suresh Tamang, permanent resident of Gorkha, Nepal. I used to worked as a pastor before joining the Women’s Protection Center (WPC Nepal). I did 3 years service working for a church and more than 10 years working in the community, sharing from the Bible, attending fellowship. I was also called into social work as well. 4 years ago, my wife Sumita Tamang and I joined WPC Nepal. We are working as safe home parents right now. We were parents of two children, but now we are becoming parents of many children here at safe home and we feel proud to be their parents. We are really thankful to God for providing us this golden opportunity where we can share words of God among this little children, inspiring and caring for them as responsible parents. I did complete my SLC from Shree Laxmi Secondary School at Gorkha. I’m enjoying in my work to make them all laugh and to bring happiness to their lives.
