Here is a short profile of Ramgilasi which was written in 2011 by our volunteer teacher Julia Mantey:
Ramgilasi is the middle child of five children. She is thus far the only educated member of her family. Ramgilasy’s father, Mangilal, farms to provide for the family of seven. Their home is in Agraa. After this year, Ramgilasy’s parents intend to take her out of school to begin preparing her for marriage. She’ll take the Class 10 direct exam after she passes Class 8. Before joining Adharshila, Ramgilasy studied up to Class 5 in a government school. When she joined, she was placed in Class 3. She finds humour in just about everything, and seems to never get discouraged. In school, her favorite subject is science, and she scores well in all subjects. Her enthusiasm in the classroom has evolved over the years from an initial state of being constantly rambunctious and disruptive. She is now focused, zealous, and a leader.
We're proud of Ramgilasi and salute her spirit and determination!
Lion Awareness campaign @ Adharshila
An exhibition on Asiatic lions, curated by Shankar Chandra for the Adharshila Schools with the generous support of The Rufford Foundation was held in April 2014. Photo credit: Javed Sultan)
The exhibition involved huge posters and infographics about the Asiatic lion, which were set up in the Adharshila schools in village Agraa and village Nayagaon. The exhibition was followed by a painting competition and a quiz, both of which got enthusiastic participation from our students. The kids received Lion bags and other prizes for their participation and for winning in the activities.
Adharshila thanks its donors for their continued support. Please help us to spread our work to more villages by donating to us via GlobalGiving.
