  Success Stories
  13 year old Mohini Maurya was born in Karol Bagh slums of Delhi. Her dream was to become a doctor . However, her economic conditions at home did not support her dreams. The Shaila Barmi Chattra Vikas Scholarship gave her an opportunity to pursue her passion and make her dreams come true .

Today Mohini is studying in the 6th standard and is receiving her basic education without incurring any extra burden on her family's already strained economic conditions at home.
Mahesh was given a second chance…

17-years-old Mahesh was born in the Karol Bagh slums of Delhi. His mental development was slow and he was unable to grasp the concepts of primary education in his formative years of growth. As a result, he was not able to attend a public school. Irregular income at home is also a problem for Mahesh’s family. Between 3 brothers, 2 sisters and their parents, the family earns an average of only 2400-3000 rupees per month. This has also prevented Mahesh from studying.

Today, Swashrit is providing Mahesh with basic education. He is presently studying in third class and is performing reasonably well. He is happy that he has been able to receive an education without incurring any extra burden on his family’s already strained finances at home.


Kajal is going to school despite the odds…


6-years-old Kajal was also born in the slums of Karol Bagh in Delhi. She lives there with her parents, younger brother, grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins where they share a small cement house.

Unfortunately, Kajal has grown up with an abusive father who doesn’t contribute to household expenses. He physically and mentally terrorizes his wife and does not allow her to go out for work. The family relies on Kajal’s loving aunt and uncle to survive, but their income is very little. Altogether, they earn about 1700 Rupees a month. Her mother wants to give her children an education to secure their brighter future.

Fortunately, Swashrit has been able to provide Kajal with basic education. Today, Kajal is studying in second class.
