Holla freunde,

b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG-20140619-WA0001.jpg

Meet Neha. One of our success stories. Neha lives on streets of Mumbai at worli mahakali nagar. Neha stays with her bua (aunt), her brother and one sister. Neha's aunt and dad doesnt have stable jobs, no proper supply of fresh drinking water, no electricity most of the time and many more issues she faces every day.

 

BUT 

 

She and her entire family is so passionate about her studies. She told her mentor that she wanted to get into an english medium school and her mentor went out of her way to get her admitted in a new english medium school. All thanks to Shilpa, who is Aashansh board of director and an amazing mentor to Neha and her sister to make such a difference in their lives. Neha today is seen with a wining spirit in her eyes, a confidence in her body language, she differentiates herself from the people in the community and specially other children who she finds loitering around or have nothing to do.

 

Neha, Roshni and Shilpa are on their journey to unearth hidden potential, build on existing ones and making a difference.

Merci :)
