Becoming a Change maker starts from Home!!
Becoming a Change maker starts from Home!! (1/1)

Coming from a small village called Khadipur in Bhilwara District, Rajasthan India, Priyanka Vaishnav did not have a lot of encouraging stories regarding studies surrounding her. But, she always knew she wanted to study. She was always a bright kid in her studies, faring well in all subjects. Her mother was left to fend herself and her kids, after her husband left their family for another woman. This did not deter Priyanka and she even encouraged her mother not to give up. Through the support of PraveenLata Sansthan an award winning NGO working in Rajasthan , Priyanka continued her studies. She even encouraged her mother to complete her studies. Her mother was inspired by her daughter’s hard work and gave her senior secondary examination (Class X exam) along with Priyanka. Today she is PLS’s Grameen Sakhi and encourages the women in her village to motivate their sons and daughter to study further. She is the flagbearer for enhancing menstrual awareness in her village. Through the confidence instilled in her by PLS, she is confident that she will be successful in securing a government job and motivate other girls in her village to not give up their studies.

Dear Bharti,
This is such a wonderful story of courage, determination and above all, generosity of spirit. Not only did Priyanka trust in herself, she and her mother now have a deep and special bond in what they have both overcome, and in how they supported each other's dreams and potentials. Now the whole village benefits. This is what women leadership brings.
With love in sisterhood,
Tam
