Ganpat is an Asha student from Kusumpur slum community. His father is a daily wage laborer. We found Ganpat to be intelligent and good at his studies in school. We supported him with plenty of scholastic material, books, mentoring, coaching given by his Asha seniors, and a quiet place to study. Sadly due to Covid and the lockdown, Ganpat’s father lost his job. The entire family was forced to return to their village. We were all worried for Ganpat as was he. However he did not give up, and continued to receive help and coaching from Asha online from his village. He scored an amazing 92% in his school leaving exam. He has just found a place at Delhi University and will be doing a Bachelors in Commerce ( Honours). Asha has taken care of his college related expenses. Way to go Ganpat. We are with you all the way!
