Bhumita Rathore is a twinkly eyed, cherubic little girl who loves to read storybooks. When she joined our school in June 2010, in Senior Kg, she was an undernourished, neglected child. Her mother is a part time maid and her father is no longer with the family. Bhumita lives with her maternal grandparents and uncle and the family can barely make ends meet. Her home environment was very difficult. Not only was it a challenge to feed her,but educating her was a luxury they could not afford. As the social worker and teachers were aware of her background and the challenges of her home environment they took extra care of her academic and emotional needs. Very often extra food was also slipped into her school lunch box by her teachers when they noticed it came empty to school, knowing very well this may be the only meal of her day.
Despite her difficulties, with the nurturing and focus by the EDUCO team Bhumita now in Class 2, not only can read and write but is a very intelligent, vocal child. As her mother meets the staff on a daily basis while dropping and picking her child she is able to talk and discuss her problems. The teachers give her guidance and ensure the family pays good attention to Bhumita's academic and social needs. The feather in our cap in this situation is that EDUCO has emerged as a caretaker of the children's and parent's needs therefore is also able to positively influence the child's emotional well being!
We are sure Bhumita will not only be a successful student but also a secure individual in the future!
