Durga: Life is the best teacher and its favourite methods of teaching is experience and events. One of our volunteers stopped by an egg stall and saw a young girl washing utensils while her brother was making eggs. The volunteer asked them both about why they are not studying, and the boy told that his father is paralysed, and mother cleans utensils in some houses nearby. While he wanted to work and support his family, his sister is very bright and wanted to go to college but they were not able to afford Rs.30,000 fees per year. The volunteer came in action and having some doubts asked them to take him to see their family. He was shocked to see that their house was just little bigger than the egg stall where a family of four was living. Father was paralysed and could not even move without support while mother had just returned from work. Once the volunteer was sure that the family was in real need, we all met and looked for a sponsor for this girl and she was admitted at a college in Gurugram and fees was directly given to the college.
Name of this girl was Durga, and she inspired us so much that we started a scholarship program in her name. We identify such girls and boys and then look for a sponsor who can commit for entire college education and give them a new ray of hope.
