Yash - Little Feet. Big Strides For Nomads.

Yash Nayak Sponsored Child By
Shri. Vinodbhai Bhagat
Yash Kanubhai Nayak is the eldest son of Kanubhai, our truly dedicated field worker. Kanubhai’s family belonged to Vanod village, Tal. Dasada, Dist. Surendranagar. 

This village has huge settlements of bajaniya community, children below 10 years had almost stopped going to school, government schools are far from their reach.

Kanubhai tried helping and supporting the organisation in the manner he could, most of the times spending his own money to support the organisation. He also spread the word on VSSM amongst his community. In 2008 when VSSM received money to form a team it asked Kanubhai to be a part of the team. He readily joined the team accepting whatever little remuneration VSSM than offered. 

Once he began to get actively involved and absorbed the principles of VSSM he understood the importance of education and focused on sending his children to school. Kanubhai dreams of educating Yash all the way and make him a role model in their community. 

Kanubhai’s earlier life was full of hardship, to meet daily requirements he had done all odd jobs, but still the essence for education was strong, with bare minimum wages he has managed to pay school fees of Yash. Till 2nd std. Yash studied in Govt. school at Vanod, then after he was admitted to Swaminarayan Gurukul Hostel at Kheda, which accommodated our nomadic children to  stay along with their local students.

Currently he is studying in 9th Std. at N.V.School at Naroda & stays in our Vatsalya Hostel campus along with other Nomadic community children. 

Yash is brilliant student & very disciplined child. He has 3 siblings, all sisters Priyanka, Varsha & Neha. Priyanka & Varsha are acquiring their education in one of the renowned school of Ahmedabad H.B.Kapadia School & stays at our Unnati Girls Hostel, while the youngest amongst these Neha stays at our Vatsalya Hostel. 

Yash is a bundle of joy!! Happy and cheerful, must to say very helpful to others hostel mates. 

Shri. Vinodbhai Bhagat, our well-wisher & donor from Mumbai, has sponsored Yash under our child sponsorship program, for his complete education expense, until he wants to study.
