Ruma is now on her way to a better future

Ruma Naiya is an 8 year old girl who lives with her parents in an urban slum near Bidhan Nagar. Her father Susanta works as a rickshaw puller and her mother works as a domestic help. Ruma used to go with her mother for work. She had started working in houses to help her mom clean houses.

The volunteers of Turnstone Global conducted a survey in the colony. They identified Ruma during the survey. They counselled her parents to send her to school.

However, there was an initial reluctance from her parents. They refused saying that education was not important for Ruma as she is a girl. Furthermore, if she went to school, the income that she would earn as a domestic help would be lost to them

The volunteers did not lose hope. They continued to speak to her parents till they finally agreed to try it for a little while.

Ruma was a quick learner and she enjoyed coming to school. In a short while she began to read and write. She soon was placed in class 2 in the Turnstone Global school. This change in her levels of growth and education has had a huge positive impact on her parents.

Ruma's life changed when her parents who had once refused to send her to school, have decided that they will do anything for her to complete her education.

Her mother is determined that Ruma will grow up and work in an office and not work as a domestic helplike herself.

With a little help children like Ruma can break out of lives that force them into poverty.
