Donate to help individuals like Vasudev live a normal life
Vasudev belongs to a poor family in Darjeeling, West Bengal. He is visually challenged since birth but still managed to study till standard 6th. Poor financial condition of his family forced him to migrate to another city with his parents. This also made him discontinue his school. His parents admitted him to an orphanage when they could not take care of him due to their poor earnings. Growing up, he travelled to Mumbai with his friends, where he started working in a hotel as a vessel cleaner. To sustain in the big city, he also stitched shoes for extra earnings. His disability made him lose his job and he was left with no option but to beg on the streets to survive. In 2008, a friend of his brought him to Bangalore where he was admitted in a visually challenged school, where he completed his SSLC. He had to leave from there as well because he could not afford to pay the school fee. He started working again in a factory to continue his college. In 2012, Vasudev was brought to Snehadeep Trust. Snehadeep encouraged him to start his college, where he excelled owing to his eagerness to learn new things. He finished his 2nd PUC here and is now studying his first year Arts Degree. He is also an enthusiastic keyboard player.
