Noronha shares testimony with CSU
Marian Noronha, TURBOCAM founder and president, will share his inspiring testimony with Charleston Southern University faculty, staff and students on Wednesday, January 22. This special Chapel service will be held at 11 a.m. in the Lightsey Chapel Auditorium.
Noronha’s “Bridge to Nepal” project started in 1998 after he was told about Nepali slaves ("kamaiyas"). The story led Noronha on a journey that broke slavery in Nepal. Working with two Nepali men, Noronha freed more than 40 families between 1999 and 2000.

In July 2000, the King of Nepal banned slavery in Nepal.
Since then, Noronha has returned to Nepal to support the people he helped free. Over the past decade he has led efforts to improve education, public health and transportation. According to his website, Noronha said his goal is “finding different ways to help people who are at the bottom of the economic scale to make a living. He hopes that by funding these children, they will be able to break the cycle of poverty, rely on their own initiative, and improve the quality of life in their communities.”
Get Involved with "Bridge to Nepal" by:
