Phool Kumari - Her Journey from Street to School

Phool Kumari
Phool Kumari

Aasraa Trust would like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to all its wonderful donors. Kind and generous people such as you make it possible for us to continue our work for the education and empowerment of slum and street children. Our goal is to give each of these children an education that they deserve, an education that empowers them. Because of your constant support and encouragement, we are able to bring more and more children under Aasraa's umbrella.

This month, we bring to you the story of Phool Kumari, one of the brightest stars of Aasraa Trust. This little girl is a power-house of energy, always up for a challenge. When we found her on the streets, 4 years back, she used to rag pick to support her family’s income. Both her parents are illiterate and with 5 children to take care of, they never considered education as an option. With counseling and encouragement, Phool Kumari  started attending the Street Smart program regularly.

After one year in the Street Smart program, Phool Kumari was mainstreamed into St. Agnes School in Class I. The following year, she was transferred to Sri Guru Ram Rai Public School in Class II. Phool Kumari has just been promoted to Class IV for the academic year 2017-18. She wants to become a doctor when she grows up and we are going to do all that we can to help her achieve this dream.

Phool Kumari is a classic example of a child who had all the odds stacked against her. Without an outside intervention, she would have continued to beg or rag pick, with no chance of breaking out of the poverty cycle. In India, there are thousands of girls like Phool Kumari who are smart, intelligent and have a fire in them - a fire to learn. All they need is an opportunity to dream, aspire and fly ! With your support, we at Aasraa are helping them do just that.
