Priyanka’s inspiring story of chasing her dreams
Priyanka is a young girl from in Belgavi, Karnataka. Life has never been easy for her as she was born visually impaired. Her father was a farmer and the sole earning member of the family. They could not afford to treat her.
She enjoyed learning despite her physical limitations. She allowed nothing to stop her and was regular to school. She completed her PUC and BA in Bengaluru. She aimed for greater heights and was not ready to give up.
Unfortunately, her family did not have the means to support her further. They did not want to crush her dreams but were unsure how to pay all the added expenses that would come with her education.
When her parents heard of Samarthanam, they approached the organisation for help. They decided to help Priyanka continue her studies. They provided her with free accommodation, food, recorded course material and assistance in everyday living. Thanks to Samarthanam, she completed her MA from Bangalore University.
She is an enthusiastic learner and scored first class consistently throughout her education. She knows that none of this would have been possible without Samarthanam's care and support.
