Ganga's journey to happiness
14-year-old Ganga, a physically challenged orphan, is a student of grade II. He lives with his grandfather who is a peasant. He has 2 sisters and 5 brothers. Before joining school, Ganga used to watch the children from outside the gate. All efforts to get him to attend the school failed, till he expressed his wish to study. He was given admission to Grade I. He is a first generation learner and there is no one in his family to help him in his studies. However Ganga is quite bright and has shown good progress in all the subjects specifically in English. His grandfather wishes to see Ganga well educated and taking up a job to change the financial condition of his family. Ganga is now a student of Sai Siksha Sansthan, and English medium, co-ed secondary school. He is studying there with no financial burden on his family. He received good quality education, which will help him pave the way to achieving his ambitions.
