Updated: Oct 23, 2023

Rahul a bright-eyed seven-year-old studying in class 2 from the picturesque village of Bhatali Block. Living with his hardworking parents, who are small farmers, Rahul’s education often took a back seat amidst the daily struggle for livelihood. The school chairman’s concern was evident, as Rahul’s disinterest in studies and irregular attendance made him one of the most overlooked children in the school. His academic performance was dismal, and the lack of concern for his participation and progress pushed him to the brink of dropping out. But, amidst the gloom, a ray of hope emerged when a dedicated centre facilitator decided to bring joy and excitement into Rahul’s life.

Rahul’s story took a remarkable turn when the centre facilitator stepped in. Regularly visiting the school, this caring individual began interacting with Rahul, extending invitations to various outdoor and indoor games, singing, and other fun activities. The initial allure of these activities caught Rahul’s attention, drawing him into the learning centre sessions.

Recognizing Rahul’s budding interest, the centre facilitator ingeniously crafted small games that intertwined basic literacy and numeracy concepts. Through these captivating games, Rahul’s learning journey took flight. As they spent more time together, their bond grew stronger day by day.

His dedication and curiosity became a beacon of inspiration for both students and teachers alike. With a twinkle in his eye, he always looked forward to the centre facilitator’s visits, eagerly inquiring about the next day’s exciting activities. Rahul’s journey touched the hearts of everyone, serving as a reminder of the immense potential hidden within each child.
