Renuka Salve dreamt of living a simple normal life; one that brought joy. Today, she and her brother Rohit live with their grandmother and maternal uncle. She does not have her mother any more and her father after an unfortunate event was imprisoned.
Renuka was one of the first kids referred by Akanksha and enrolled into the Ra Happy Kids Programme. In 2007, she secured admission in Standard VI in Sanjeewan Vidyalaya, a residential school in Panchgani, Maharashtra. This was a turning point in her life, to move out of a difficult environment to an enriching and encouraging school set up.
Renuka kept up a good academic record throughout and also actively participated in football matches, representing her school at inter-school and state level games.
This year, with a percentage of 86.12, she has stood third in her school and makes us very proud. She is the first child to complete Std X though the Ra Happy Kids programme.
Renuka is evolving to be a mature, well-grounded and smart girl. Her behaviour, mannerisms and ways of communicating are admired and appreciated by everyone.
