Rukhsana got enrolled in the Agrasar Bachpan centre in the month of May, 2015. During initial months, she mostly came without having a bath and wore unclean clothes. She had also been highly irregular. Our teachers have made it compulsory for the children to take bath in the morning, brush teeth and wear clean clothes. The idea is to break old practices and inculcate new habits through motivation and practice. The team spoke to her mother and found out that Rukhsana is completely on her own for most of the day. With parents away or whole day it was unexpected of a five year old to take care of herself. The team had continuous (rational as well as emotional) conversations with her mother. Slowly, things started improving. Rukhsana started coming to the centre regularly with a proper bath and wearing clean clothes. She has been mainstreamed into the 1st standard of Government Primary School, Sikanderpur Village in April, 2017 and has been promoted to the 2nd standard within 5 months. Amazing determination by Rukshana at such a young age and strong support provided by her mother paid of well!
