Grandfather Durga Kami has become one of Nepal's oldest students at 68, after he made the decision to return to school and complete his education. Mr. Kami was not able to complete his studies in his childhood due to poverty. But now he's set on achieving his goal of becoming a teacher. With the aid of a walking stick, Mr Kami makes the hour-long journey to school every day. Currently in the 10th grade in Nepal's schooling system, he studies alongside 14 and 15-year-old students.
