As I belong to a very poor family and our income is hand to mouth therefore I and my sisters and brothers face lot of difficulties in getting basic amenities like food, cloth and even education. I and my family went through many difficult situations in managing our house, Due to this problem I and my siblings were unable to study further. There was shortage of school books, dresses. But I managed everything I borrowed books from my friends and requested my teachers to provide me school dress and books. As I am good at studies therefore my teachers always helped me in my difficult situations. I always enjoyed going to school.

She did not find any hope for her dreams to come true. Two years passed like this. One day she heard about the adolescent group that was formed in her village. After requesting her mother, she was allowed to attend the group meeting & become the member of the group. After finishing her regular house hold activity, she used to attend the adolescent girls group meeting every Saturday at 4.30 p.m. With passing day, she mixed well with all members of the group, and shared her feelings, her dreams of continuing her study. The members assured to support her. One of the group members took help of the PECUC field staff, whom they called as didi [that means elder sister]. She guided her through the process and adviced her to continue her study through distance mode from Utkal University. Not only this, the group members along with the PECUC staff went to Kiran’s house and convinced her parents to let her continue her studies. After repeated visit, her parents were convinced and allowed Kiran to fill-up the form for distance course. Kiran is now pursuing her graduation in distance mode.  It was like a bird coming out from the cage. She shared her career dream of becoming a teacher and helping those kids are out of school. Kiran is now an active member of the adolescent group and has been a catalyst in convincing other girls to continue their education. She was thankful to the group friends & PECUC didi for helping her fulfill her dream.
