Give a girl a bike: help her go to school

By Vanita Shinde | CAO

“My aim is to purse the career of school teacher once I grow up because according to me it is the only medium through which you can transfer your knowledge and good thoughts to other”, says Amruta.

Educating Girls is like sowing the seed which gives rise to green, cheerful and full grown family plant, but to get that education she has to face many challenges. In remote villages most of the families allow girls to study only till primary or at the most till 7th standard, even though  she  is good in her academic she is not allowed to study further and this is only because the school is far away from their house and  lack of  transportation  facility.

Amruta  is one of such clever student from small village called Gondavale. She is from lower middle class family. Amruta’s father expired in her childhood. There are 3 members in her family, Amruta, her mother and sister. The responsibility of entire family is on her mother alone. It is really very difficult to run a family with very low income in this high inflation period, but her mother somehow manages it.

Amruta studies in Navchaitanya School, Gondavale. She is in 7th standard. Her school is 4 km away from her house. She covers this distance by walking. To reach school on time she has leave her house early in the morning & in the evening.  Also it becomes very late while returning, due to this she gets very little time for her self-study and cannot even help mother in her work.

“One day during school hour one of the representatives from Mann Deshi foundation visited our school and gave us the information about their free bicycle program. I was very happy to listen that there are such institution that help girls in completing their education, for a moment I wished that I could get the bicycle so that I can save my time of travel and surprisingly my class teacher recommended my name for bicycle, I felt very happy at that time.” Says Amruta.

I was really happy as my major problem of commuting was solved by Mann Deshi.

While returing home with bicycle I knewed there would be major change in my routine life and that would really help me and my family.  Now I reach school on time and return home early in the evening. I can help my mother in her work and get enough time for self-study. All this has helped me in getting good marks in exams. As I reach school early I can participate in other activities also.

My aim is to purse the career of school teacher once I grow up because according to me it is the only medium through which you can transfer your knowledge and good thoughts to other.

I and my sister will study hard and complete our education as we want to make our mothers life happy, we are aware of the efforts she is taking for our upbringing. She has never made us feel the absence of our father in our life. She plays both the role very effectively.

There are many Amruta’s in this society and I am happy that Mann Deshi Foundation is doing a great job of  reaching to each and every one by providing them with free bicycle and helping them in completing their education. 

I thank Mann Deshi Foundation from bottom of my heart as they have showed us the path of success.   My best wishes for their future activities.
