Government School Student, Hyderabad
District Level Science Exhibition, Chennai
I lost both my parents at the age of 5 years. Now me and my younger sister are staying with one of our relatives. We belong to a middle class family hence my uncle is not able to support our education in private school as they themselves have a daughter which goes to private school. I study very hard because I want a good future for my sister. Earlier our school didn’t had computers for us to learn or science lab to conduct science experiments. However, from past 2 years with the support of DXC Technology we are learning computers. On weekly basis, our computer teacher comes to teach us computers. From her I am able to learn new things on computers. Now I know that after my school I can go to a good college and get a better job.
My father died when I was in 3rd standard. To sustain a family of 5 members my mother started working as a vegetable seller where she earns about Rs. 200 daily. The money is not sufficient for our family hence even I go in the morning to sell vegetables with my mother to earn more money. For us learning computers, doing science experiments or reading a book is a luxury. I never thought that we would get access to these facilities in our school and I will able to learn like students of private schools. Earlier I was not sure whether I would be able to do anything beyond selling vegetables. Now I am sure that I can pursue higher studies and go to a better livelihood.
