Kajal learns to read

This month we have Kajal talking about her own experience of the project over the last couple of years. Thank you as always for continuing to support our girls. It means a lot to us, and to them.

"I am Kajal. I have migrated from Madhya Pradesh. I stay in Rajiv Gandhi nagar Pune. My father went to school only for eight years. I have an older brother. My father is working for a tailor. My mother works as a domestic help. When I was in 6th class, I couldn’t read and write. I was not bothered by this fact as I was engaged in our house work, like washing utensils. I was behind in study in class. My brother was not helping me in study. When I entered 8th standard, I was still in same place about reading and writing. In our school, there are no exams up to 8th standard, nobody including teachers, bothered about me not reading and writing in 8th standard.

I started study with (Green Tara Foundation) GTF in August 2017 .One day, when I realized I can’t read in class, I felt very ashamed about me not trying to develop myself. Some friends of mine use to go to GTF for study help, I started to go there and in three months, I started to understand and read and write. I could read and write now. In class, I was feeling can I cope up with this? But GTF class helped me by keeping a personal attention on my study.

I overcame on my own wrong perspectives about myself. I overcome on my low confidence and low self-esteem. When I learned to read and write it developed my interest in studies and I started to enjoy studying, reading and writing. If I had not got the opportunity to attend GTF class, I never would have passed of 10th standard, maybe I never would get higher education, too. I passed this board exam which would have been very difficult for me. I passed it because of GTF.

My parents are happy about my progress. I am feeling secured about my future. I will complete my higher education and earn money for me and my family.

Thank you for giving opportunity to share my thoughts."
