You can help girls like Akshada stop worrying about their school fees
Akshada is a young girl from a slum in Maharashtra. Her mother works as a maid and her father is a gardener. They were both never able to earn enough money to support their family of five.
Akshada felt sad when she saw her classmates get new school bags and go for picnics but she knew that her parents could not afford those luxuries. She kept attending school but became afraid when her teachers started to remind her to pay the school fees. She started to worry if being the oldest child, she might have to stop going to school.
A social worker who knew her story brought her case to IDEA foundation. Akshaya has been studying under the IDEA sponsorship program ever since. She is now 15 years old and in Class 10.
Akshada and her family used the scholarship earnestly. She worked very hard and got 84 percent in Class 9. Apart from studies, she also takes part in co-curricular activities and enjoys them. IDEA also provides her with individual guidance from the social worker and takes her on exposure visits to help her plan her future.
She is a focused and driven girl and is working hard to grow into an independent young woman. She also attended a spoken English class recently. This has made her more confident and she is now excited about the possibilities her future holds!
