OUR Active Campaign

The Story

Sumit and Farid walk along the jungle pathways to reach Van Vidyalay Sodinagar Tongia. The rains, heat, muddy paths, no transportation, fear of animals bows down in front of the sheer grit and excitement to be in school to learn and be with friends.

Nandini, Shalini, Aasma and Rafiya walk from their huts in the forest holding hands wearing the traditional clothes laughing and running as they approach the school. All four are girls aged 7-12 keen on learning alphabets and writing in different languages.

As Rafiya shows the traditional ‘Kaintha’ playfully speaking Gojri (native language) her smile is unmatched. The ease to learn in Gojri is amazing.
