Story

As soon as she hears the honk of her school bus, 8-year-old Geethanjali is off with a spring in her step. The excitement of going to school is unparalleled for Kavitha and Chethan’s little girl. Always on top of her school work, Geethanjali is a favourite not just among her peers, but also her teachers.

“More than anything, I feel happy when the teachers tell me what a nice, giving child she is. She’s always sharing, and easily becomes friends with everyone. She’s also doing well in school, but above all, she makes us proud by being the person she is.

The start of a new school year is not too far away, and Geethanjali is now eagerly waiting for June. She’s going to class 3 and is excited about all the new lessons she will learn and the new friends she’ll make. However, Geethanjali’s excitement might soon turn to disappointment. 

Geethanjali’s parents are struggling to pay for her school fees


Kavitha works as a receptionist at a hospital in Bangalore, while Chethan is a driver. Despite working all day, and sometimes, all night, their income isn’t enough to continue their only child’s education. Her school fee is Rs. 70,000 per year, an amount that's out of their reach. They’ve somehow managed to pay for her education for two years, but are now falling short.

My husband couldn’t complete his degree because of a family emergency, so he’s very particular that Geetu gets a good education. Very early on we decided that no matter what, we will give our daughter the education she deserves. She loves school more than anything, we can’t take that away from our little girl.


How You Can Help

Geethanjali’s only wish is to go to school, learn new things and play with all her friends. She’s only 8-years-old but is extremely dedicated to her school work, equally excelling in extracurricular activities as well. Kavitha and Chethan were happy to see their child blooming, but now, they’re heartbroken at the thought of taking away her happiness from her. With your help, Geethanjali can continue going to school for the next 3 years and have a chance of a bright future.
