We are pleased to share one of the beneficiary story benefited by the project 

Name                                    :               U.Padmavathy

Class                                      :               Std.VIII

Age                                        :               13 years


U.Padmavathy is studying Grade VIII in Govt. Adi dravidhar High School, Kannanur. Her parents are working as coolies for daily wages in Mysore.  She has two brothers and a sister. Her brothers and sister are staying with their parents at Mysore. Only Padmavathy is staying with her grandparents.

They live in a hut house. Her grandparents are also working as coolies and their income is sufficient only for the food expenses of the family. They are unable to get her basic school requirements.

Padmavathy is a very clever girl and she is the class topper. Considering her family situation, she was enrolled in the ESC. She respects her teachers at school and in the center. She is always regular to the classes.  

As she was excelling in studies we wanted her to continue it with much ease and hence we considered to enrol her in the project & she was given all her denied basic requirements. Now she is able to go to school without any complexity in her mind.
