Harshida's Story - aged 7


Harshada’s parents, both mother and father, are working as wage labours and  whole day they are away from home.  Harshada’s old grand mother is the only person at home to look after three small kids which was beyond her capacity.  Their financial condition is very poor and the parents somehow manage the house expenses.

Harshada was very shy  girl and  was having inferiority complex.  That was the reason she was not able to mix with other children.  However three year back she joined in the pre-school centre, started by NISD, and there were number of changes took place in her overall personality.  She started taking interest in her studies, different plays, songs etc.  As her interest increased she was coming regularly in the pre-school.  Her hand writing is very beautiful. She also took part in number of competitions and gain confidence.

Last  June  she was enrolled in the formal school in the first standard.  When meet her class teacher, he told she is very clever and active girl.  Her hand writing is beautiful.  She sings songs, good in play, won in school competition, she is good in studies, and she never bunks her class.  She is  best student of our class and school.  Not only that but she gives speeches very well.  Comparative to other students she is  very good at reading, writing, story telling, singling  etc.

Harshada’s  younger brother and sister also attend the pre-school regularly.  Thanks to you for supporting NISD to run pre-school activities and for shaping  future of    displaced tribal  children like Harshada.
