Praveena-17-04-2021-GS
Praveena-17-04-2021-GS

Praveena lost both her parents in a
span of five years but it is her father's
dreams and his last words that make
her strive to do well in studies and
become an IAS officer.

Although she wasn't a class topper,
perhaps because of her bereavements,
Praveena's ambition has always been
to pursue a career in the Civil Services.
She admires Mr. Sagayam, a former IAS
officer who was reputed for being honest
and appreciated for his anti-corruption
activities.

After studying on a scholarship at Isha
Vidhya Tuticorin, Praveena is now
pursuing her Undergraduate studies
in English at V.O. Chidambaram College
of Arts and Science, Tuticorin, because
she loves languages.

Praveena says she will forever be
grateful to the donor who ensured that
she could study at Isha Vidhya with no
financial worries especially since her
paternal uncle (her guardian) was under
immense family pressure to send
Praveena and her sister to a government
school after her father's demise.

As an IAS officer, Praveena wants to
ensure better emergency medical
services – her father's untimely demise
was due to the lack of it.

If you would like to support Isha Vidhya
to enable more and more students like
Praveena, please consider starting a
monthly recurring donation for a small
amount at:

https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/empower-india-girl-students-through-education/?show=recurring

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

Thanks & Best Regards,

lekshmi-11-04-2021-GS

Lekshmi is currently studying in
Grade 12 at Isha Vidhya Nagercoil.
She's preparing for writing her
UPSC India exams. Lekshmi is
motivated by IAS officers who
started their services at an young
age, and wants to emulate them.

Besides being a school leader,
Lekshmi was a topper in Grade10
scoring 94%, and received prizes
from the District Collector and the
Daily Thanthi newspaper!

Lekshmi, who is an orphan, says
excelling in academics is the only
option available to her and finds
practicing Yoga every day at school
relaxing.

This multi-talented student has won
prizes at a national level drawing
competition, in discus throw,
throwball, kho kho, essay writing,
and an elocution competition at the
district level.

Lekshmi plans to study geography
in her Undergraduate program, as
it will be useful in preparing for her
UPSC exams. Once she becomes
an IAS officer, she hopes to achieve
recognition through her work.

We need lots of young people like
Lekshmi who can take up administrative
services roles in India, to help govern
the districts and societies. We are
extremely happy that there are many
students from Isha Vidhya, who would
like to take up IAS !

In order to enable us support such
ambitious students, and to be continually
part of Isha Vidhya’s rural education
work, please consider starting a monthly
recurring donation for a small amount,
which will go a long way in supporting
our work.

My Nation Is My Career

Keertigha is passionate about serving
the nation and wants to do so by
becoming an IAS officer. She already
has an agenda of the improvements
she wants to implement – from
improving education in rural government
schools, to addressing unemployment
in youth to helping farmers... the list
goes on.

Keertigha's leadership qualities were
recognized and honed at her school,
Isha Vidhya Villupuram, where she
became the school leader for a year.
She was also a school topper, having
scored 98% in Grade 10 and 86% in
Grade 12, and is currently pursuing
her Bachelors in Science in Clinical
Nutrition at Bharathidasan Government
College for Women in Pondicherry.

Keertigha says her curiosity to explore
new subjects makes her strive to do
well in studies and that her teachers
at Isha Vidhya were great mentors,
motivators, and inspiration role models.
Even now, after having passed out,
Isha Vidhya continues to play a
significant role in helping her realize
her ambition, and Keertigha hopes to
give back to society through her work.

If you would like to enable many rural
Indian children like Keertigha, please
consider starting a monthly recurring
donation for a small amount to be

her 13 years of education, scoring 97%

it’s the best way to grow herself, improve
her family's situation, as well as

Mathematics at Sri Krishna Arts and
Science College, Coimbatore. She

Jothisri-21-03-2021-GS
Jothisri-21-03-2021-GS

Jothisri studies in grade 10 at
Isha Vidhya's Dharmapuri school.
She had got admission for her school
studies at Isha Vidhya Dharmapuri,
as her family felt that the fee would be
affordable as her family didn’t have
adequate resources.

She joined Isha Vidhya school in
Grade 3. Her father Selvam was
working in a granite company as
a machine operator. Her mother
is a housewife. Her father being
the only breadwinner of the family,
he was not paid during the Covid
lockdown period. When this issue
was raised, he was stopped from
the job itself.

A case is going on regarding this
issue, and he has to travel to
Krishnagiri, the nearby district,
weekly twice or thrice for court
hearings. The family is struggling
a lot to meet the routine expenses.
Temporarily, her father is working
as a delivery man in a helpline.

Despite all these struggles,
Jothisri attended online classes
regularly, sent homework, and
participated in the activities
enthusiastically. We admire her
punctuality in joining the online
class with proper school uniform
and attire.

We are fascinated about Jothisri's
curiosity in playing games. She is
confident. In academics, initially
she was toggling between below
average and average. Now she has
improved a lot and she is one among
the top 10 in her class.

Jothisri shares that her life and
studies seemed like a Himalayan
task, but once things became clear
about what to do, everything became
easier to manage.

Isha Vidhya enables several rural
children of India like Jothisri. If you
would like to be part of this cause,
you can consider starting a recurring
donation for a small amount in the
link provided below.

Thank you for all you have done
for Isha Vidhya, and we look forward
for your continued engagement.

Thanks & Best Regards.
