Stories of Hope

In 2009, a frail, careworn woman walked into our premises. Behind her, was hiding a little girl. Having migrated from Jhansi in Uttar Pradesh in search of a livelihood, the woman now worked as manual labour at a construction site. She grappled exploitation and toiled away to raise her five children. Deepa was nine, the eldest of the children and bore much of the burden of household chores. In her eyes however, we saw the resolute light of hope, a yearning to learn, to grow. 

Deepa was led into the nursery class at Sshrishti the next day. She has never ceased to inspire us since. Amidst students much younger and apprehensive in the spaces of a school in the beginning, Deepa took to learning with much ease. She was a keen listener and an eager student. From the classroom, she soon participated in activities outside of it too – extra-curriculars, sports, music and dance.

Deepa continues to learn. She was successfully mainstreamed this year into a Government School in South Delhi and we at Sshrishti look on with much wonder as we see her grow each day, learning new lessons, dreaming newer dreams and nurturing newer hopes for her life to be.
