Stories of success
  We are delighted to share the story of our Nanhi Kali, Kokila a class VIII student at the ADW Higher Secondary School in Virugambakkam, Chennai.
At the age of 1.5 years Kokila lost her mother, who immolated herself after being frustrated with her family’s dismal living conditions. Life dealt another nasty blow when she lost her father to an illness while she was still a preschooler. However, Kokila emerged stronger and more determined to live her dreams.
Kokila has been living with her aunt and uncle, who in spite of being daily wage workers; support her education in every way possible. Kokila was identified as a Nanhi Kali in 2011 when in class III and now she is in class VIII. Despite having faced adverse conditions from an early age, Kokila manages to have a very positive outlook to life. Her teachers at the Academic Support Centre describe her as helpful, bright, sincere and as an eager learner. Her helpful attitude and being a class topper made Kokila an ideal choice for the post of a class leader.

Kokila is passionate about singing and enthusiastic about other extra-curricular school activities. She aspires to complete her education and eventually become a teacher to enable her to pass on the gift of education to girls like herself.
