I am Shivani Paunikar,  a class 11th student from Government school Nagpur. My father is an auto driver  and my mother is a homemaker. My hobby is drawing and I want to be a teacher when I grow up. 

I am a student of Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur’s learning center and have been studying here since last 6 years. I like how subjects are taught here and then tested after every month so that we can monitor our 

progress regularly. I also learn a lot of new things like art and craft etc. I learn new habits from my teachers who are kind enough to teach us and answer all our doubts. I always secure the top rank in my class. Every year we get a school kit from Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur, which consists of bag, tiffin, bottle, notebooks, drawing pads, color box, and geometry box. We also get fruits and milk products as part of the nutrition program started at the learning center.

My parents are both uneducated so there was no learning atmosphere in our home. That is the main reason I was not able to understand my homework and concepts taught in school properly. One of our neighbors suggested us to get enrolled in Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur’s learning program. After enrolling myself, my studies have improved a lot, I am now scoring very good in my class. Also I am helping other children with their homework in the slum. I thank Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur for my life changing improvements. Now along with my studies I am also preparing for entrance tests in teaching program.

Shraddha Yogesh Zarkariya

Shraddha Yogesh Zarkariya, a 15 year old girl studying in 10th Standard in a government school. Shraddha says, “If I study, I aspire to be an IPS Officer when I grow up”. Shraddha broke all previous record of her school achieving A grade in her annual examination in academic year 2020-21. Apart from excelling in studies, she is doing very well in sports and extra curricular activities. Shraddha has made us realize the magnitude or significance of what India necessarily requires. She has shown us that with the right opportunity and support, a child can go the distance, in just three years from being a child labourer, she has transformed herself as a merit scholar with every possible growth path opening up in front of her. Shraddha’s parents died when she was a little girl. She lives with her relatives and they shared their sentiment prior to Shraddha ‘s enrollment under Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur’s learning Program. Whatever they got on daily basis was not sufficient even for a single meal in a day. They did not even know if they would get their next meal since it totally depended on whether they would get the next day job. Her aunt further added that she wished Shraddha gets proper education but due to paucity of funds she was unable to help her in her studies. Gram Sewa Sangh Nagpur supports Shraddha ’s education and entire related expenses. We salute Shraddha, and many more like her to make the impossible possible.
