A student of Academy for Working Children (AWC), Maharajpur
Ajay Kumar has some good words to speak about his experience:
“My name is Ajay Kumar and I am 10 years old. My family hails from Chaubara village in Mahamaya Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh. My father, Mr. Sanjay Kumar and my mother, Ms. Anjudevi, work as helpers in a private company. It has been almost 5 years since my family came down to Karkar to look for work.
I never took interest in studies and never thought of becoming part of any educational institution, until one day I saw some children enthusiastically participating in different games and other extra-curricular activities. I was informed and convinced by the staff members regarding the benefits of getting enrolled in the academy. I expressed my willingness to join the academy to my father who surprisingly supported my interest and enrolled me in the academy on the very next day,” chuckles Ajay.
“Initially, I faced difficulty in adjustment as I never took any interest in studies before but the support from teachers made me acquainted with the education approach and now I have become comfortable. I relish participating in the extra-curricular activities and cultural events. There has been an obtrusive improvement in my academics as well as in oratory skills. I am eternally thankful to the staff of the project for giving me the opportunity to be the part of this academy as well as Sanganeria Foundation for their support to the academy,” says the happy student.
