It all about women empowerment at 21st century. My story is a not different but is in the same line of many underprivileged students specially girls aspiring for higher education without strong financial support.
I lost my father due to heart attack at the age of 6 year. He was a farmer in Chikballapur, Karnataka making my mother widow at very young age. Initially we were surviving on the widow pension of Rs 500 per month paid by the Government to her. Time was getting tougher day by day. She came out of the four walls and started working as house maid in neighbor. Somehow she raised me and my sister with whatever she was paid.
Pay slip of my mother: Monthly salary Rs 7642/-
Cause of the campaign:
Through government counselling, I got sheet in a Engineering College, Banergetta Road, Bengaluru, Karnataka in the dept of Electronics and communication Engineering (ECE), Affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi and approved by AICTE, New Delhi. As per the fee structure the total expense of 4 years study will be around RS 4 Lakhs. As i got sheet through CEET, every year i need to pay only Rs 30,000-45,000 per year. Somehow, i paid fee for 1st and 2nd year. Now i want your support for 3rd and 4th year, It will be around 1 to 1.5 lakhs. We don't have any saving or property to sell and bear the expense of my education.
We reached many banks for loan but interest rate is too high almost 10-12%. We can't take it.
