Pooja is a young girl from the Katkari tribe in Maharashtra. She was the first person from her family to go to school.

Tragedy struck her life when her parents died when she was in class 2. She had no one to look after her or pay for her education. She had to drop out of school and go live with her grandmother.

Volunteers from Vidhayak Sansad found Pooja and brought her to our residential school. The school started looking after her education, shelter and basic necessities. She is now in class X and is good in drama, music and sports.

She wants to go to college after she graduates. She hopes to one day become a leader who brings change in the lives of tribal people. Pooja is a role model for her entire school today.
