A student of Academy for Working Children (AWC), Maharajpur
“After frequent visits to the compound for nearly a week, one evening, as I expressed my desire to attend school to my parents, they took a sigh of relief, as I seemed interested in education for the first time. My father got me enrolled at Maharajpur Centre soon and I started attending school. Though I never liked studying in the past, after coming to AWC, the manner of teaching has somehow inspired me to pay attention in class and complete my homework,” says Sonu happily.
Sonu’s teacher says that he needs to work harder with academics and is making efforts in the direction. However the fun activities, and sports, invariably seem to capture most of his attention. He is otherwise a well behaved child, who is friends with many in the class.
