Coming from a family of domestic workers, Narasimha wants to become a Scientist!
Currently in Grade 8, Narasimha joined Christel House in 2011. He belongs to a family of seven. He has three older sisters and one older brother. Two of his older sisters discontinued their studies after grade 10 and are married now while his other siblings are currently studying at government institutions. His parents work as domestic helpers and struggle to provide for the family.
Narasimha lives with two of his siblings and his parents in an old sheet roofed house in the Akkiyappa Garden Slum in Bangalore.
Christel House works with over 24 slums in Bangalore where children from the most impoverished families are admitted into the school. Narasimha was found during one of the Community Outreach Programs conducted by the Social Services Department of Christel House in the Akkiyappa Garden Slum in Bangalore.
Narasimha is a quiet, well behaved and exceptionally clever boy. He performs well in class and is always enthusiastic about learning. His favorite subjects are Science and Math. Also, he is keenly interested in art and music. That being said, he is very good at painting and has been learning to play the mridangam and recorder at school. His ambition is to become a Scientist.
Narasimha will be with Christel House until he completes Grade 12 in the year 2024. Christel House's intervention in Narasimha's journey to breaking the cycle of poverty will not end there as the school will provide a scholarship to help him pursue a University Education while simultaneously providing him with career guidance and other related support. Christel House will ensure that he is gainfully employed based on his interests and qualification after completing his tertiary education.
