For Annu Kumari, the scholarship provided the financial support, which her family would not have otherwise able to procure. A. Kumari’s father works as a driver and her mother is a housewife. Due to lack of finances, Annu’s brother wasn’t able to pursue education outside their home district, which does not have high quality higher education institutes. However, with the support of the scholarship, Annu is able to 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 Masters in GeoInformatics from BITS Ranchi with the support.
Annu Kumari, the first Streeksha scholar, has now been appointed Project Scientist at the Remote Sensing Application Centre. Lucknow. This sapling took 6 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 also to remember it takes time.
