Shankar overcomes the trauma of an alcoholic father to become a class topper!
Shankar, an 8 year old boy lives in Gusbethi, a remote village about 2 hours from Gurgaon. He lost his mother at a young age. His father turned to alcohol and soon became addicted to it. This led to a very difficult and disturbing environment at his home. This was no place for a young child to grow up. Shankar started going through severe trauma and soon dropped out of school.
During this time a nonprofit that was working in his village came to notice Shankar. Noticing that he needed to be removed from this environment, they referred him to Deepalaya.
Deepalaya team then visited his house and understood that he had no support. He was then enrolled into their transit home. He was given emotional support to cope with his grief.
The home provides him with a safe shelter, clothing, quality food and healthcare. This helped him bloom into a happy child.
They channelized his energy by enrolling him at Deepalaya School, which is in the same campus as the home. He took to studies like a fish to water and has been consistently scoring good marks. He was encouraged to take part in extracurricular activities like singing, drawing, dancing, and theatre.
Shankar scored 86% in Class III. He tops the class in English. He is good at art and dance. Shankar has become a mentally and physically strong child. There has also been a remarkable improvement in his behavior. He is a polite and friendly boy now. He is very careful about his personal hygiene.
Shankar now has the childhood that he lost. He loves school and wants to grow up to be a teacher!
