Dablu Bingadika, a 7th Std student, hails from Denganapayu village, which is a beautiful hilly area situated 1300m above MSL. The village got connected to the road network only a few months back. Dablu is a student of TRW Govt Residential School, 45km away from the village at Burja, Laxmipur. Their village school is non-functional and hence his parents Utra and Harso Bingadika has put him in the far away hostel school.
OSF’s Reading and Learning program is functional in the village since September 2020. This has made the family relieved that the children in the village are able to spend some useful time learning, even during the Covid days. Earlier Dablu and his friends were just whiling away their time and moving around the area. Daily, classes are held from 8AM to 10AM in their village except during the lockdown days. Only students from their village attends the classes. Sirma, is the teacher who is a 10th Class passout. Reaching 10th class is a great milestone in their area. Dablu has access to the story books stocked in the OSF learning unit as well and he is a regular user.
Parents of Dablu are illeterate and never attended school, but they desire a great future for Dablu and his elder sister. They want their children to make the best opportunity of the facility which they feel is God given.
