Ruby, 12, lives with her mother and two brothers in a shack constructed of tin in the slum of Gunjar Vasti.
Before joining project activities Ruby’s family had migrated from a village to a city slum and Ruby found the change very difficult. Ruby was doing poorly at school and she felt it difficult to sit still or to concentrate for very long. She was always in trouble with her teachers. This worried Rubys mother who felt that she was intelligent and had lots of potential.
However Ruby’s mother couldn’t help Ruby with her studies because she had never had the opportunity to go to school herself. So she enrolled Ruby in the projects study support classes in October of 2015.
With help from the project team Ruby is now doing well in school. She is reading and writing English and got good marks in her recent exams. Before Ruby was very shy but she is making friends and has become confident in making the journey to school on her own. Ruby wants to be a teacher in the future and now feels like she can do it with the help of the project. Thank you to all our supporters who helped Ruby overcome her obstacles.
