Parwati Sunar, 27, offers a homemade cake made of wheat flour, sugar, and milk to her eldest son, Resham Sunar, 11, during his birthday in Punarbas, Kanchanpur district, southwest Nepal, August 6, 2022. Parwati attends the same school as her eldest son, Resham, after returning to an education system she fled at the age of 15, when she eloped with a man seven years her senior. Parwaiti said she hoped to become "literate enough"?to be able to keep household accounts. "I think I should not have left my school," she said, explaining the desire to catch up on the lessons she missed. REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar SEARCH "CHITRAKAR NEPAL EDUCATION" FOR THIS STORY.
