Project Title : To Empower The Deprived Excluded Children Through Providing Them Quality Education

Name of Beneficiary :

Before Intervention :
I am studying in 5th standard in a Government primary School at Moodaibettu, Nada Village in Belthangady Taluk, Karnataka. I come from an economically poor background. My parents can manage to write and read. They are daily laborers and in great difficulty we run the house. I have one brother younger to me. My academic performance is very low because I have no one to support me and to guide in my study. Thus many a times I felt low self -esteem by comparing me with others.

After Intervention :
Earlier I found it very difficult in reading and writing. But I am doing a lot of improvement today because of the special couching in and through Reading Improvement Program (RIP). Teacher Vijetha is a great help to me to come up and to show positive results in my academics. I am also a beneficiary of Skill Improvement in Mathematics (SIM) to learn the basics of math.

I feel great and exuberant as I improve upon my basic learning and getting into extracurricular activities such as reading short story books and singing. People seeing my confidence in singing call me to chant Bajans in the temple. All these things are possible because of the constant support of the teachers, Capuchin krishik Seva Kendra-Vimukti, and the Donor agency Volkart Foundation Indian Trust for lighting a lamp in my life. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Name of Beneficiary :

Before Intervention :
I am studying in 4th standard in a Government primary School at Indabettu in Belthangady Taluk, Karnataka. As I hail from a poor family as we don’t have basic necessities of life such electricity and proper housing but still I was sent to school because of my parents’ desire and my dream. Since my Parents are uneducated I had no one to teach me apart from school. But I managed to go to school everyday walking almost two kilometers in spite of poverty.

After Intervention :
Today I am a transformed person in terms of education, social, emotional life style. Earlier I could not read and write properly but because of the extra efforts by teacher Shilavati to read and write in and through Reading Improvement Program (RIP) I feel great that I am improving day by day.

I am also grown emotionally and socially. Earlier I was feeling low because of my satisfactory performance. But today I am equal to the other students. I have built up my personality in extracurricular activities such dance, singing and drawing. I am very much grateful to all the teachers, Capuchin krishik Seva Kendra-Vimukti, and the Donor agency Volkart Foundation Indian Trust for lighting a lamp in my life.
