Successful educational journey of Khushboo

Khushboo has lived in great poverty all her life in Peeragarhi slum community. Her father is a Cycle Rickshaw Puller who had no work all through Covid. The family fell on desperate times, and the Asha family came to their aid in every way possible. Khushboo lives in a shanty hut made of tin sheets with no toilet and no kitchen. She has no smart phone and no access to the internet. She studied at the Asha Centre and at the home of a friend. She does not remember when she last bought new clothes. She has just got a place at Delhi University to study an Honours in History. Asha has paid her entire tuition and has helped her successfully navigate the admissions process. We are all so happy for her. We have promised to support her all through her 3 years at university.
