Jyotasana

Jyotasana is an 11 years old girl. She is one of the children who acquired a bicycle from GVT. She, and the 10 members of her family, is living all together in a house in Janiyadra  village. Jyotasana has 3 sisters. Unfortunately, her mother died a few years ago so her and her 3 sisters are living with their father who has to take care of them alone. Her father is a goat and sheep breeder; he also works in the field.

Jyotasana is in the 5 standard and she passed her last year with a second grade. Her house is at 4 km distance from school and before having a bicycle she had to walk the all way every day as there is no bus facility in her village. Now that she has a bicycle, she is saving a lot of time every day and she is using this free time to go to study for school and to do some housework. Jyotasana’s father wants her to pursue a higher education even
though, they are very poor and he doesn’t know if he will be able to afford a higher education. All the money he earns is used to buy the necessary food for the family.

Jyotasana has 1 younger sisters who also go to school by bicycle with her. The bicycle is in fact useful for the two girls. Before hearing about the bicycle program, her family had no relation with the Gram Vikas Trust and today when her friends are telling her that they also want a bicycle, she just answer: “yes, you will also go to Gram Vikas Trust
