I wish to express my gratitude to the organization and thank them for helping me in every condition.
– “Mera bass chale to mai fir padhnekeliye Rasta join karlu.”
“Today, I feel so empowered when I share about my life experiences and the struggles I’ve faced being a girl. My name is Savita Kumari Rai. I’m a 27 year old successful commercial taxi driver. Rasta has played a very important role in my life.
There are 7 members in my family, my parents, 2 younger brother and 2 older brothers. My elder brother is a computer teacher. I joined Rasta in the year 2000 when I was 5 years old, my cousins were also studying in Rasta at that time and through them my parents got to know about Rasta but nobody paid any attention to it.
One day the teachers of Rasta were doing community visit and I was washing the utensils at home, she saw me and came to me and asked about my studies and in which school do I study. I told her that I don’t go to school, by listening this she called my mother and asked her about this. My mother replied that we are unable to pay the fees of school and have 5 children.
The teachers of Rasta tried to convince my mother for admission but my mother denied and after as I remember, she came to my house 5 times and talked with my father regarding the same after her continuous efforts, the parents agreed and I got admission there. I started to come here and very soon I started enjoying the activities and the sessions. I got admission in a government school also and in the afternoon, I used to come here every day.
Rasta has always been a support system in my life I studied here and also took part in other co-curricular activities. It’s an unforgettable journey of my life and I will always cherish the memories that I got from here. Today, I’m able to support my family in every condition.
