Jhallu - A Story of Determination

Jhallu comes from a large family with eight sisters and brothers, and for most of her life lived in a village deep in the forest where there was no school.

 All her sisters were married off without an education and this looked to be Jhallu’s fate as well. When Jhallu was 10 years old, her whole village was forced to relocate as the government was going to build a dam nearby. Leaving behind her birth place was very challenging but her new village had a primary school and for the first time in her life Jhallu was able to go to school!

 She was so enthusiastic about learning that before long, and against all odds, she completed her 5th grade and passed the entrance exam to high school. The high school was however 10 kilometers away; the roads were unsafe and despite her constant efforts, she had to give up and dropped out after the first year.  

 Three months later, Jhallu heard about the Barli Institute and resolved to enroll despite fierce opposition from her family.  Over time, with patience and persistence, Jhallu kept on going until she won over their hearts and continued her education.   

 Jhallu has now completed the six-month training program at Barli Institute, has passed her 10th grade exams, and is currently preparing for her 12th grade exams while staying at the Barli Institute. Jhallu wants to be a police officer one day; and although her father tells her that it is not a suitable profession for a girl, she is convinced that helping to maintain law and order in society is her destiny. She believes that one day she will be able to change her father’s views on this too.
