Success Story 1
Rekha was on the verge of dropping out of school due to poor grades and lack of parental support when she was noticed by SAHASH volunteer Sanjana:
Rekha was good in Hindi. She could read English books but she didn't understand what the stories meant. She faced difficulty in calculations of arithmetic’s. She could not practice at home because there was no time. Her mother works so as the eldest child, she had to perform household chores. Her parents were illiterate and therefore didn't understand how important education is, especially for a girl, to empower her to live a decent life.
Having seen thousands of lives ruined this way, Sanjana social workers knew if Rekha did not complete her education, she would never be able to extricate herself from the life of poverty she was born into. And as a girl, if she did not stand on her own feet, she was at higher risk than a boy of being exploited and maltreated.Hence, Sanjana social workers immediately enrolled Rekha in the local OHM Institute (Remedial Education Centre). It was her last chance.
