“I want to help my parents.”
“With his meager daily wages, my father struggles a lot to feed our family of six members. To support him, my mother started working as a maid in our neighborhood. Being the eldest sibling, I have taken the responsibility of all the household chores, including cooking and serving my younger siblings – before going to school. Sometimes, I get late for school. ”
“ But I do not want to give up on education, ever. I am always inspired by the way my parents have struggled through hardships. I want to complete my education soon and get a job, so that I can help my parents more than I am currently able to.”

School Life’, when I think about it, a big smile crosses my face instantly. Here, there is nothing that stops us from dreaming big things. Our characters are getting built here, and we are actually discovering ourselves. To test our skills we have exams which are so much fun (at least to me). The excitement or at times anxiety to get the results – all feels worthwhile. The greatest happiness for me lies in being praised by my teacher. And it is also important to learn from our mistakes because what we learn now determines how we act in the years ahead.
Friends, picnics, games, club activities, and so much learning – I believe, what makes school life important is also what makes it the best.

Kuldeep’s parents couldn’t get him treated for almost a month when he got his leg severely injured, owing to extreme poverty. After a month when he was taken to a hospital, doctors recommended him to get his leg amputated. Kuldeep denied, and started to look for alternative ways to recover from it.His unwavering determination and grit helped him heal faster. A few years later, Kuldeep lost his father due to drug addiction. His mother, who was suffering from respiratory problems, also left the world soon after.
Kuldeep, with his two little siblings, shifted his village and started to live with his grandmother. Kuldeep not only fought with his physical enfeeblement but also dealt with this huge loss and strove to make his way through 10th Board Exams with 70% marks. His mother’s last words, “never do drugs” and “you matter” continues to reverberate in his mind.

“Whenever we feel dejected or lose strength, we look at our daughter. She not only gives us hope but also ignites a passion to create a better tomorrow for all of us. I couldn’t study beyond class 8, but I know that education can change lives. Going to school has been the true beginning of her life, and a new start for us too. As her father, I feel even more responsible to nurture and provide good education to our only child.”

“When my brother died, everything changed. He was younger than me and very dear to me. My parents hoped that my brother could get us all out of poverty one day; believed that he will grow up, earn a dignified livelihood and support the family. His death brought an unfillable emptiness and a terrible silence to our home. My father is a security guard and my mother works as a domestic help. I have grown up seeing them struggle every moment of their lives, for me and my brother. “
“I wanted to bring back the lost optimism and cheerfulness in my family. My achievements in school and in studies have brought new hopes and dreams to my parents. Today, I am my parent’s support – just the way they are to me. I want to study, make them always proud, and give them the happiness they deserve.”

“It takes time and genuine efforts to get children listening to a teacher. Many of these students, who are aged between 5-8 years, are first in their families to be stepping in a school. Their parents work hard to keep their stomachs fed. Education was the last thing on their mind. So I’m starting with the basics- the very basics. We all have now become friends. And I don’t want to make any mistakes in my attempts in providing the right knowledge to them. “
“I am coming up with my own methods every day. Some days I’m a clown for them, some days I’m as old as they are, and some days, I become strict. My classroom is a ‘make-your-own-mistakes’ zone. But we have all promised one thing to each other- we shall all pass in our own journeys!”

“Whatever I am today, I owe it to my school and to my teachers. Like me, hundreds of boys and girls who starved for knowledge, travelled a long distance to reach school every day. Some even travelled for 12 kms (one side) on a bicycle. Many of our parents haven’t stepped in a school. Education is therefore sacred for us, and our teachers have always been there- not to just give us knowledge of books, but beyond – from moral support to building our confidence, instilling values and more. “
“When I scored 90% in class 12, it brought a lot of pride to my parents and teachers. I feel every child in my village deserves a chance to grow up, be able to read and write, and become doctors, engineers and teachers. Every evening, after my college, I teach students who are first in their families to be getting an education. I just want to give these children all the knowledge that I have by teaching them the way I was taught by my hard-working teachers.”

I keep telling my daughter: “Do the best you can in school and don’t worry so much about what your marks are. Believe in yourself. I believe in you, and so does everybody else. You’re going to be great at whatever you choose to do. Don’t be afraid to work hard. I know sometimes it is difficult, but if you can work at it without giving up, you’ll find it easier. I promise, I will never give up on you. You are my teacher and I am yours…” My child Omu was four years old when my husband died.
I will always remember those painful years – the screams of my little child, and the silence that followed. She stopped talking to anyone, even to me. It was a difficult phase. I started working on daily wages for our survival. It is still not an easy life. She goes to school now. She has started talking to people, even making and playing with friends and performing at school events. I pray to God every day that she never loses her smile again.

“My parents have struggled a lot and still do to feed our six-member family. But they never let anything stop me from getting an education. For me, they are angels. I have cherished a dream since from my childhood – that I will give a comfortable happy life to my parents after completing my education!”
“The teachers welcomed me with open arms and a big heart.”
Aarushi, a student of class V, Satya Bharti School Jyouna, Farrukhabad, belongs to the marginalized community where the awareness regarding the importance of education is really low and the enrollment of girls in schools is, therefore, on the lower side as well.
Seven year old Aarushi comes from an underprivileged family living in Naglafarm, Jyona block, Nawabganj district, Farrukhabad, a remote village in Uttar Pradesh. Her father works as a laborer and is the sole bread earner for a family of nine. He was unable to enroll his seven children to school since it was difficult for him to afford quality education for all of them. The Satya Bharti School teachers met him and urged him to enroll his children in the School. He was ecstatic to be able to provide education to his children.
Soon enough, Arushi and her elder sister Muskaan joined the school. They started focusing on their education as well as co-scholastic activities. Both of them bagged the first prize in the cluster-level competitions – Rang-Tarang. With great pride, Aarushi shares, “The Satya Bharti School teachers welcomed me with open arms and a big heart.”
A caring environment at home and the consistent support in school proved to be a boon for young Aarushi. She is always the first to answer her teacher’s questions in the class. She finishes her work and loves to draw. Aarushi is regarded as a role model by the girls in her village. She works hard towards her dream of becoming a great artist and drawing teacher someday.
With a focus on the education of the girl child, every activity at the Satya Bharti Schools is organized keeping in mind the needs and safety of the students. The teachers are also well-equipped to support the co-scholastic needs of every child studying with the School.
