The Foundation runs a house-school that hosts 48 girls. Pepe himself is the sponsor of Kala Rai, while 12 other girls benefit from the Oriola family’s sponsorship.

This was the Spaniard’s first visit to Nepal. Oriola met the principals and teachers of the centre that helps girls with few resources to continue in their academic education.

"The work the Vistare Foundation is doing is especially praiseworthy, because they give these girls the opportunity to be educated and build themselves a future," said Oriola, who also visited rural and underprivileged areas of the region and the Puntshok monastery.

"This helped me to appraise even more what I have. The people who live here give special importance to kindness and generosity and meeting them was a moment I intensely lived."
