Renuka is 11 years old. She is in 7th standard in school. Her father died when she was young. Her mother works on a building site doing manual labour. She comes from a very poor family. As is common in India Renuka's eldest sister dropped out of school in 2nd standard to work at home with her mother.
Renuka has been involved in the project for a year. She joined to do the computer classes and the healthy recipe tutorials. She has since got involved in other areas of the project such as school study support classes. Renuka now performs well in Maths and English where previously she struggled.
In the future Renuka wants to build a bungalow for her mother to stay with her. But for now Renuka is happy making friends and being able to play with other girls her age. None of this would have been possible without the support of the project and its supporters.
