Scholarship beneficiary-case story

I am Krithika(18), I live in Erode district, Gobi Taluk, TN palayam Union, Kasipalayam panchayat. There are 300 families living here. The people in this village going to mill, company and daily wages.

My father’s name is Murugeshan and my mother’s name is Anandi; they are working for daily wages in agricultural farm. I have a sister, she is studying 12th std. my mother’s health condition is not good; she is suffering from breathing problem so she could work continuous.

After completion of my 12thstd, I started going to cone mill due to family situation. As my father’s income was not sufficient and my mother is also at home. Our family commitments became more. Though I had interest towards education, I was unable to continue my education.

In this difficulty time I come across with READ. As I was a member of Adolescent Girls Group, I shared my problems in the group and I asked the READ coordinator to help me. So through READ I got Rs.5000 as scholarship. With the scholarship, I joined for fashion designing course at Bhavani Nataraja College. I thank READ for helping me and supporting me.

I went to work for family situation but READ helped me to get better future. I thank READ for supporting me.
