This time we bring to you the story of our students, who not just inspire their fellow students but also us. They are the live examples that motivates our team in continuing this initiative of free and quality education for all. Let us introduce you to two such inspiring students.
First one is Arvind, who came to Adharshila on the very first day of the school’s opening. It was 15th of August 2005 and Arvind a little boy of 8 joined us. He never liked to miss a day of school till he graduated from Adharshila in March 2016 after taking the board exams, which he aced. Soon after he started preparing for competitive exams. In 2017, he took the recruitment exam for State police service and got selected. At Adharshila Arvind has been known for his passion for Mathematics and Cricket. He loves talking and thus relishes being on the stage. Once he grew taller enough to stand to the microphone, he never missed any opportunity of anchoring and was always the first to grab any anchoring opportunity. From a toddler in grade III, Arvind has become a source of inspiration to other children. We hope that he blossoms into a man of honour and integrity. We wish him all the luck in life and career.
Another inspirational story is of a tribal girl Papita. Papita is in 9th standard now, and it’s been 4 years since she joined AMHS. Earlier she was studying at one of our SRCs and got promoted to AMHS after successfully completing her primary schooling. She is seen actively taking part in various events at the school. In her words “One thing I cherish here is that we have all the freedom to take part in activity and event of our choice”. Be it games like kho-kho and kabaddi or dance performances at the annual cultural event, Papita can be easily spotted everywhere. She adds “we do not have to face discrimination here; all students get the same treatment and I really like this… People from our village used to say that Adivasi do not study, but now that a number of us are attending school and doing well people have stopped making such comments”. She understands the role of education and thus says “I aspire to become independent one day, my schooling will pave the way for achieving my goals”
We hope that you enjoyed knowing our students. We look forward to having a few words from your side about our initiative. Meanwhile, please spread the word about our work and keep supporting us.
