Two sisters graduate from Ashwini Charitable Trust
By Radhika Arvindam - Trustee
Nithya and Nisha
These two sisters have been a part of ACT for almost 13 years, The elder one Nisha (name changed) 22 years passed out recently and is working in a corporate as an accountant. Her sister Nithya (name changed) 20 years is graduating this year finishing her B com in a reputed college in Bangalore. Despite being born into a family with an unemployed father and a mother who works as maid to meet both ends meet, these two girls have challenged their destiny by graduating with flying colors.Nithya remembers being a shy child who had joined ACT when she was in 3rd class. She started learning English and computers after joining ACT. She realized that learning could be creative as well as fun. She remembers the experiential tours she had, extra curricula activities, the mentoring she had got from ACT. ACT has been supporting not only her education, but has also helped her grow to become the enthusiastic, charming young lady she is today. “Hadn’t I joined ACT, I wouldn’t have been able to complete my graduation”, says Nithya.
