Asha student from Peeragarhi slum bags a seat in Delhi University against all odds
Dr Kiran: ”This is Preeti, and she has scored an amazing 86% in her school leaving exams, all because of her hard work and the mentoring provided by the Asha Ambassadors in Peera Garhi slum community. Her father worked as a day labourer while the family could only afford a rented shanty. Two meals a day were a luxury. He sadly passed away due to kidney disease. Her mother had never left the house, but was forced to find some work. She began as a domestic help, but then suddenly lost work due to the pandemic.
Preeti says she never had enough in the way of books, school uniforms, and stationery, but she never complained, and was always sad to witness the circumstances of her family.
She has now found a place at Delhi University and will read Political Science and Economics. She can never forget what Asha has done and is determined to help the younger school students in her community.”
