For Annu Kumari, the scholarship provided the financial support her family would not have otherwise been able to procure. A. Kumari’s father is a driver, and her mother is a housewife. Due to a lack of finances, Annu’s brother couldn’t pursue education outside their home district, which does not have high-quality higher education institutes. However, with the support of the scholarship, Annu can live the dreams of her father and that of her brother. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Geography from Delhi University and is now pursuing a Masters in GeoInformatics from BITS Ranchi with the support.
Annu Kumari, the first Streeksha scholar, has been appointed Project Scientist at the Remote Sensing Application Centre. Lucknow. This sapling took six years to turn into a beautiful, strong tree. We supported her throughout (graduation, post-graduation, internships). And today is the day to feel proud, and remember it takes time.
