Due to poverty his father could not able to afford tuition for him. But, the teacher of our Remedial Centre in that slum came to know about him. She contacted his family and Akash joined our special remedial classes for English, Mathematics and Science regularly. Within a short span of time his hidden talents came to forefront and he excelled in his studies in school. After some days, a District level "Science Exhibition" was organized by the Education Department in which Akash participated with his project.
Akash's project received good reviews and appreciated by the students and teachers visited the science exhibition. At the end, his project got the Third Prize among junior group. It is heartening to see the slum child has got the recognition among more than hundred projects placed in the exhibition. We wish all success in life..!!
