Scholarship Beneficiaries Case Study

I am Saranya, I reside in Ambedhkar Nagar, Alukuli panchayat, Gopichettipalayam Taluk, Erode. My father’s name is Vannarai and my mother’s name is Pushpa, my parents are daily wagers working in agricultural field. I have a sister( Pavithra), she is studying 10th std at Allukuli Government High School.

We are only four in our family but the income generation is very low. My father worker twice/ thrice in a weekly but my mother is a hard workers, she workers very hard to run the family. For me it was very difficult to see the struggles of my mother so to support my mother financially, I also decided to go spinning mill and I worked there for 3 months after completion of my completion of my first year Polytechnic.

As I was the leader of Adolescent Girls Group, I got to know the information of READ giving scholarships to the students. So I applied for the scholarship and I got Rs.2000 to continue my education and later I continued my 2nd year computer science at Venkateshwara Polytechnic College.

After completion of my studies, I want to work as a computer engineer and I will help my family. I thank READ for supporting to continue my education.

My parents are working for daily wages but it is not necessary that I should also work in the same field. I thank READ for providing an opportunity to continue my studies.
