Hi I'm Rabina from Takula block of Almora Uttarakhand. I'm studying a course of ANM from Doon University Dehradoon. My Mother, Father, younger brother and 2 sisters are part of my family.
My mother is doing work on another's farm because we don't have our own farms and my father used to give tuitions to students in a nearby private school in the village but because of lockdown, they lost their job. Now, the family of 6 people depends on other's farms and in the hills, people do their farm work by themselves, rarely other people seek help in farms because the farm size is not big.
Next month I'll complete my 1st year and I've to submit my second-year fee (7000-Admission fee, 30,000- Food charges, 3000- Accommodation fee, 10,000- Books and Medical equipment) but my family has no single penny to pay but I saw a dream in my mother's eye to give me a life different from them but now in her eyes, I'm seeing a silence. Last year I've selected in the ANM nursing course with overall 5th rank in Uttarakhand and for my first-year fee submission she sold her gold mala (mangalsutra) but now she doesn't have anything to give and no one wants to give us a loan because everyone knows we don't have anything to a mortgage.
I'm requesting you all please save my mother's dream and my future. Thank you.
