“Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom.”
Jogigowda, a student of Kamakshipalya LC achieved a remarkable 94 percent is SSLC exams.
What makes this result amazing is how it was achieved.
Jogigowda comes from a very humble background. He is from Chandagala village of Mandya district. His father is bedridden due to a heart stroke, leaving his mother to earn bread alone as a daily wage worker.The deteriorating financial condition forced him to drop out of school.
But tides changed when Rashtrothana Parishath, partner NGO of Youth For Seva identified his potential and gave him shelter in Nadagokula, Kamakshipalya, a learning center run by Sponsor a Child – Youth for Seva in collaboration with Rashtrothana Parishath.
Apart from outperforming in academics, he outshined in extra curricular activities as well.
Winning 1st prize in essay writing and 2nd place in quiz competition, in an event called Kalachetana , goes to show just what a little encouragement and support can lead up to.
We are exuberant and proud of his achievements and wish him a bright future.
