A student of 9th Std., Sakshi lives with her family in Dhokmod. Her school is about 2 km from her house and she goes walking. After coming back, she has to help her mother in doing household work. Her father works as a daily-wage laborer in other people’s fields and thus, the family’s financial situation is weak. As her school is far, it takes time for her to reach home, and her parents get worried for her. Sakshi aims to be a police officer and thus gives importance to education. However, daily walking to-and-fro tires her and she always wished she had a way of commuting to school. Her dream came true when the Mann Deshi Foundation gifted her a bicycle. “Now, I am able to save my time and can focus on my studies.” she says.
I'm very happy that I got a bicycle. Now, I can focus on school and studies.
