Aniket's Story



NAME:  Aniket  Dattatray  Kangune.  Age-  12 years                                      

Aniket and his family resides at Village Saikhindi.  His father is a wage labourer and his mother rolls bidis to earn their daily bread.  They live in a small one room rented house.  Their financial condition is very poor.

Aniket’s health was very poor when he was small.  NISD organised a pediatric camp in his village and Aniket was diagnosed with a small hole in his heart. The doctor suggested an operation of this six year child which was not possible for this family.  Her mother was crying about Aniket’s position. 

NISD staff built confidence in Aniket’s parents and encouraged them to go for further check-ups at Pune.  The  K.E.M. hospital, Pune doctor also confirmed the problem and advised surgery.  NISD and local doctor used their contacts for concession in the operative charges.  As Aniket’s mother is in the Self Help Group the group members arranged Rs. 20000 as loan from their SHG and it’s federation.  The operation was done and Aniket’s problem was solved.  Afterwards Aniket’s health started improving and he developed as a normal child.

Now Aniket is studying in 6th std. in the Manoharbaba Vidhyalaya in the same village i.e. Saikhindi.  This is a govt. run school.  NISD organised a number of programs in  his schools such as computer class, yoga class, mobile library, support class and other programs.  Aniket benefits from these program.  Support class help him to improve his studies, reading, writing skills. He also receives support in form of educational material. Aniket is a member of Child Parliament – named Jeevandeep  Balpanchayat Gat. Aniket’s younger sister, Reshma, also became member of Child Parliament. Aniket says he has a number of friends after joining the Child Parliament groups and he learns a number of good things in the groups.  Recently he learned to ride a bicycle.

Aniket’s house is very close to the NISD run pre-school centre.  So he always go there and helps the worker in keeping books/play material at proper place, decorate the pre-school centre, and keep the place clean and neat.
