Surya Karki

Daayitwa Summer Fellow 2014

Born in Sankhuwasabha Nepal to the most wonderful mother, education was the biggest gift Surya ever received. Since starting schooling Surya has followed his mothers directions, to provide for the people who live his past – not having enough resources to live a dignified life. And since finishing education in Nepal, Venezuela and USA, he co-founded Maya Universe Academy – Nepal’s first free private education institution. He currently leads Diyalo Foundation Inc. in Nepal and Haiti and hopes to someday lead Nepal with a vision for economic success, and social and environmental integration.
