Manisha is an icing on cake in our hostel, mischievous yet emotional, bright but sometimes sluggish. We have great hopes from this child.
She belongs to Palanpur Dist. Gujarat State, father Rameshbhai Saraniya, Manisha is the sixth child amongst five elder sisters and two brothers, Rameshbhai is a small dealer in animal trading, this region is hub for inhabitant of buffalo dealers, quality breed animals are found here. But dealers with marginal working capital doesn’t always earn handsome profits. Sometimes he has to go without any work. In such crucial situations he used to work on daily wages.
Manisha’s elder sister worked as house maid in nearby residential societies, her elder brother did not complete his studies, due to bad company he didn’t either bother to finish his schooling and was spoiling his future. Rameshbhai was disappointed with his son’s performance & forced him to work on a tea stall in their village.
Rameshbhai’s endeavour that his children should understand the importance of education, though very lately he realised the need to be educated otherwise he would have educated his elder daughters. Presently his three daughters are studying in our Unnati Hostel. And today Rameshbhai takes pride amongst his community people, for educating his daughters. We too feel honoured as all the three girls are brilliant in their studies.
Manisha is studying in 3rd grade, very lately enrolled in school otherwise today she would have been studying in 5th grade.
Kusumben Shah, a humble and dignified personality from Ahmedabad and well–wisher of VSSM, she expressed her wish to sponsor the complete education expense of a girl child, a thought which came to her when she admitted her grand daughter in school, she thought why not to enlighten a girl’s life with the boon of education.
We suggested Manisha’s name & Kusumben willingly accepted. Manisha is hard working, but very frisky, its difficult for her to sit at one place for few hours, but she dreams high to achieve. She is confident that one day she will become Doctor. VSSM take pride to share that Manisha tops in her class.
We extend our gratitude towards Kusumben and her entire family for being the reason to fulfil dreams of Kantibhai to see his children educated.
