How the Award transforms life - Improved educational attainment

Adrija Chatterjee, Award Leader from Sri Sarada Math, Rasik Bhita is sharing the life changing story of Prityi Das. Prityi Das has started her Award Journey under the Gender Diversity and Women Empowerment Project under aegis of ISPG.

Prityi Das, one of our Silver Award holder from Sri Sarada Math-Rasik Bhita scored 74% in the Higher Secondary Examination. Prityi comes from a socially and economically challenged background and she faces lots of hurdles daily. Her father does not stay with them and her mother is a maid servant who is also physically challenged. When Prityi started her education, there was no support. It was a dream for her to continue her studies. Prityi did not lose hope and tried to get financial assistance and scholarships. At the time of her Silver level Award Journey trek to Matha Hills, Prityi’s mother refused to let her participate as her final Higher Secondary Examinations were knocking at the door, but Prityi stood up against that and said that she could do anything and could face challenges because she had learnt this from the Award. At last, Prityi's mother relented and she did this camp successfully and also achieved a good result in her Higher Secondary Examination. She proved if you face challenges boldly you will get good results. The Award family congratulates Prityi and wishes her a good and successful future.
