Every child has dreams and ambitions. Among them are a few who are self-motivated to improve the current circumstance, not just for themselves, but for the entire community. Such are the stories and goals of our beneficiaries from GITS.
"We don’t have a doctor around, so when someone in the family is not well, my mother resorts to traditional medicine. I want to become a doctor and help the people who live in our camp", says Tusaram Reang, a 13-year-old boy studying in GITS Kashirampara.
Tusaram hails from a humble background. His father is a farmer and domestic help and mother earns through weaving and selling traditional attire known as ‘rignai’.
Tusaram aspires to become a doctor as there are no doctors in his village and people have to travel a long distance to find one. He has a special interest in learning languages. His siblings also study in the same school. His parents could not afford to send their children to a private school. They are now happy and relieved as their children are receiving good education along with all necessary learning materials, uniforms, and meals at the school, all free of cost.
"I want to become a teacher and educate the children of my village", says Rosmirung Apeto, a 13-year-old girl studying in GITS Kashirampara.
Rosmirung Apeto is the youngest child in her family. Her siblings are also enrolled in GITS. She is excited to learn new things and is interested in understanding the solar system and gathering knowledge about early humans.
Rosmirung’s mother is happy that her daughter is a quick learner and ensures that she has enough time to concentrate on her studies. Rosmirung desires to become a teacher so that she can enable and empower the children in her village by providing education.
