Also present in the ensemble was Rajan Thapa, was previously a street child but has been involved with Heartbeat for more than 6 months now. Presently he is learning English with Sabina Adhikari, a youth messenger for Heartbeat.
“We had planned for this tea party charity program 3 to 4 months ahead. Our main agenda was with the money donated here, our ‘Tea4free’ campaign would be alive for a couple of more days. We do not expect millions in cash but even the hundred rupees donated can help us serve tea to 10 street children,” says Juju Kaji Maharjan.
‘Tea4free’ is a weekly campaign conducted every Tuesday at 6 am in different areas of the Valley where most of the street children are served tea and also provided counseling and entertainment workshops. Tea4free was initiated by Heartbeat, an organisation formed by a group of enthusiastic youths led by Juju Kaji Maharjan which has been working actively for ‘Art for social change’ in social issues like orphanage, street youth, prisons as volunteer service by interconnecting youth.
Since 2008, Heartbeat has been working on its ‘creating dreams for change’ campaign with street children and youth. Tea4free campaign is one of the attempts to connect with these street children and youth.

‘उनीहरुसंग यो मेरो भेटघाट गर्ने पहिलो माध्यम भएकाले सानो सहयोग गरेकी हुँ तर आज उपस्थित भएका मध्ये करिब १२ जनालाई पढाउने जिम्मा पनि चाडै लिदैछु’, मनीषाले भनिन् । अभिनयबाट टाढा बस्न खोजेकी मनीषाले आगामी दिनमा समाजसेवालाई बिशेष प्राथमिकता दिने बताईन् । तर आफ्नै नाममा ट्रष्ट खोल्ने पक्षमा नरहेको उनले प्रष्ट पारिन् ।
