In October 2022 Miksim is nearing the end of her second year at the Karnataka College of Nursing in Bengaluru. Having been posted to hospital earlier in the year, she is now going out in the field. The hospital posting included many practical things such as giving injections and setting cannula. Twelve hour night shifts were another feature (but not all the time!).

Now she and her fellow students are carrying out a survey campaign in a remote area. This involves visiting all the houses in a district, giving medical checkups and administering polio vaccinations, learning about another aspect of practical life as a nurse.

She is doing very well and she has our best wishes.


The Children of Sikkim exists to support the education of disadvantaged children from Sikkim, in the Himalaya, NE India.

We are a UK registered charity which helps such children to be educated in Sikkim and elsewhere in India, from primary school through to college or university.

We give a young person continuity of support so as to allow them to achieve their potential.
