Against all odds, Iram shines bright in her High School Examination
Every kid has a right to education. It’s a harsh reality that many kids are still deprived of basic education. But Iram from Seelampur slum community is an exception. She scored a brilliant 88.7% in her High School examination.
Eighteen-year-old Iram’s family hail from Kasganj, Uttar Pradesh. Her father was employed as a kadhai (embroidery) worker for last 20 years. After migrating to the Seelampur slum community he was unemployed for some time and later started working as a daily wage labourer.
Fourth among her seven siblings, Iram is the brightest in the family. With the help of Asha, she not only got the sample papers but also was helped with extra tutorials. Her family was counselled to send their daughter for higher education, which helped her to score good marks.
Teary-eyed Iram shared, “I want to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in arts and become a teacher. I want to give back to my community by educating every child in my slum.”
She is thankful to Asha for their support. Many other children like Iram are looking forward to your help.
