Story of a young and vibrant girl

Saniya, a young, vibrant and charming girl, belonging to Bidar district of Karnataka, came to Mitra Jyothi with a strong ambition of becoming an IAS officer. She firmly believes that, the opportunity to go for higher studies, which she got through Mitra Jyothi’s Education Support Program, is the first step in her journey to achieve her goals.

Saniya is visually impaired by birth, raised in a lower-middle income family, whose father runs an artificial jewellery shop and mother is a housewife. She has an elder brother, pursuing graduation in B.com. Saniya studied in Matoshri Ambubai Residential School for Blind Girls in the Gulberga district of Karnataka till 10th standard. Saniya came to know about Mitra Jyothi from a senior student in her school and applied for the Education Support Program. Saniya got enrolled for her 1st PUC in (History, political Science and Economics) in Government 1st grade college, HSR layout Agara Bangalore for the academic year 2021 -22. Saniya says, “when I got selected for this sponsorship, it was like getting wings for my dreams. Without this, it will be very difficult for me to chase my dreams”.

Going to college is a very different experience for Saniya, because throughout her school life, she was in a residential school for blind children in her home city. She never experienced the world outside her school and family. Apart from pursuing higher education, the new life in Mitra Jyothi creates an opportunity for her to explore a new world with countless knowledge, wonders and adventures.

Saniya is vociferous when she talks about the mobility training that she got from Mitra Jyothi. She says “This is for the first time in my life, I got a well-structured mobility training. In fact, I was not even aware that mobility can be trained like this. It helped me a lot!!!! I started walking independently without the fear to fall. Above all, I feel very confident and proud when I go to college by walking independently along the sides of a road”. Saniya is very happy about the computer training and other essential skills learning sessions, that she receives from Mitra Jyothi along with the support for college education.

Being supported by Mitra Jyothi, they are getting the opportunity to explore our other prestigious programs like the Talking Book Library and Computer Training for the visually impaired. Life in Mitra Jyothi is not only giving them the opportunity to access higher education but also helping them to be empowered to live in the real world.
