Fiji native helping improve children’s education through NOC
When Narendra P. Sharma left his native Fiji Islands in 1964 to come to America, he was embarking on the first of three distinctive phases of his adult life: higher education.
His first stop was Hawaii, where he began his college career as part of the East-West program that was started under President Kennedy and carried forward by President Johnson, and is similar to the Fulbright scholarships program.
Hawaii was also where he met his wife, Martha.
The second phase of his life was a 32-year career with the World Bank in the Washington D.C. office of the organization.
