Ilakiya
Ilakiya

Shares Ilakiya in 12th grade:

“Namaskaram all

I am Ilakiya of grade 12.
I study at Isha Vidhya since 2007. Before
joining Isha Vidhya, I had dreamt about
studying in an English medium school
My parents work on daily wages. Their
income was not enough to remit my
educational expenses in a private school.
Luckily my family came to know about the
scholarship provided by Isha Vidhya in
educating rural children. I got admission,
and I am continuing my higher secondary
with courage and confidence. In our school,
activity-based education is encouraged.
Learning by doing makes me more
comprehensive and initiates learning all
subjects. I commute to school by bicycle
which keeps me physically fit. I like sports,
and my school encourages sports. Every
year, we get chances to compete with other
schools. I wholeheartedly thank the supporting
hearts behind my education. My aim is to
become a doctor and I am putting all my efforts
on studies. Thank you.”

With all your help, lives of several students
of Ilakiya are made through quality education
at Isha Vidhya. If you would like to be continually
engaged with Isha Vidhya’s work, you can
consider starting a monthly recurring donation
for a small amount at:

We thank you for all you have done for
Isha Vidhya, and we look forward for your
continued support!

Thanks & Best Regards,

Durga and her mother
Durga and her mother

Durga is a 11th grade student in
Cuddalore Isha Vidhya school.
Durga's mother Rajalakshmi runs
a small grocery store in their
village in the state of Tamil Nadu,
India.

“Since the lockdown, I earn little
or nothing. Customers have not
been able to earn money and are
unable to spend any. I am finding
it difficult to make ends meet –
we are even falling short of food
for the children. But I want Durga
to study well, so I let her use my
smartphone for her online lessons.
It makes me so happy to see my
child learning so many things.
Durga should study well and
become a doctor one day, this is
my dream for her”, says Rajalakshmi,
with an empty wallet but a heart
full of ambition for her daughter.

Parents like Rajalakshmi have great
hopes and ambitions for their children.
If you would like to be continually
involved in supporting the education
of rural children like Durga, you can
start a monthly recurring donation for
a small amount, which will make a
huge difference in offering education
for them. The link to start a recurring
donation is:

We thank you for all you have done to
Isha Vidhya, and we look forward for
your continued support!

“I really miss school. I want to meet my teachers.
In the online classes, I don't know how, but they
make sure I understand everything. But I still want
to be in the classroom.” recounts Logeshwari, from
12th grade. She goes on to cheerfully remembering:
“Attending the school assembly gives me a sense
of peace, and being in school with friends and
teachers is so much more fun.”

Logeshwari feels that she will do well in exams
despite the challenges of the lockdown as her
teachers are giving her the same attention as they
did in the classroom. “I find it easy to share my
thoughts and interact with my classmates,
teachers, and guest experts, without limitations.
What I like best about the online classes are the
motivation sessions of the Get Mentored sessions,
the live Zoom classes, and the Hero group activity”,
she declares. She is sure when she says, “I want to
score well in the final exams and take up Bachelor
of Commerce (B.Com) in the college next year.”

All the best, Logeshwari, may you achieve all that
you have set your focus on!

Dedicated students like Logeshwari charter their
own path to success! If you would like to be
continually engaged with Isha Vidhya’s work in
enabling India rural children’s education, you can
start a recurring monthly donation for a small
amount. The link to start a recurring donation is:

Niranjana with her family
Niranjana with her family

Niranjana wakes up early in the morning
and gets ready for school. Armed with the
lunch prepared by her mother, Niranjana
and her brother Haripriyan cycle to their
school, located about two kilometres away
from her village near Villupuram, Tamilnadu,
India.

As a farmer’s daughter, Niranjana knows
education is the only way to uplift herself
and her family. She aspires to become a
district collector (administrator) one day,
a government position that is held in high
esteem by many in rural Indian communities.

“My favorite subjects in the school are Tamil
and English. I also enjoy the lab activities
during Science lesson. I am happy I am not
being a burden to my parents and I can study
without worrying about our financial
situation,” Niranjana said. Niranjana’s
mother said her daughter tells her
everything that goes on in her school.

“Without fail, she would update me about
what took place in the school, the projects
she is working on, what her classmates did,
and what her teachers taught in school.|
She is a very hardworking child and I am
proud of her. Without the sponsorship, it
would have been a financial burden for my
family as with the income we get from the
paddy fields, we may have to decide which
child we should support to stay in school.
But now, we don’t have to choose,” she said.

We are glad that Niranjana could get quality
education and aspire for a great career. We
are extremely grateful that we are able to
make a difference in the life of several Indian
rural girl children. It would have not been
possible without the support from patrons
like you. A big thank you for all you have
done for Isha Vidhya!

If you have not done so already, you can
consider starting a recurring monthly donation
for a small amount to continuously be engaged
with this effort. The link to start a recurring
donation is:

We look forward for your continuing support!


Thanks & Best Regards,

Saranya - Isha Vidhya student
Saranya - Isha Vidhya student

Dear Patrons,

It is not a one-way road when the
students take inspiration from the
adults. The adults also take inspiration
from students who excel and shine
in their studies!

One such story is of Saranya from
Isha Vidhya Coimbatore school. Saranya
is a first-generation school-goer who
joined Isha Vidhya in kindergarten
on sponsorship, and was consistently
a good student. She went on to complete
her school education in flying colors
when she scored 93.3% in 12th grade
public examinations! It is worth
mentioning that Saranya was one of
the toppers at Isha Vidhya in the 10th
grade public examinations too!

“The encouragement given by my
teachers, family, and my friends made
me study hard and get good marks”,
shares Saranya.

We strive hard to generate next-generation
citizens through quality education.
Participation in this effort by patrons
like you is so important. We thank you
for your contributions to Isha Vidhya,
which enabled sponsorships for students
like Saranya.

If you would like to be continually
engaged in supporting the education
of rural girl children, you can consider
starting a monthly recurring donation
for a small amount. The link to start
a recurring donation is:
https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/empower-india-girl-students-through-education/?show=recurring

We thank you for everything that you
have done for Isha Vidhya, and we
look forward for your continued support.


Thanks & Best Regards,
