Santra Maida is a class VI Nanhi Kali from GMS Tamboliya, Ratlam. Her family’s main source of income comes from agriculture. In addition to this, her parents also seasonally migrate to find daily wage earning jobs. As a result of this, it was common for Santra to miss classes and her attendance showed high irregularity. Due to lack of sufficient exposure, her parents were also not keen on ensuring that she got proper education.
However, through project Nanhi Kali, the team was able to explain the benefits and relevance of educating their daughter. Santra has now become a regular to school and she has also succeeded in bringing more girls into the project. The project has helped Santra in developing an interest towards education.
