Help make Monika’s dream come true – An Indian village girl determined to study!

By Sharda ten Hove on 26 June 2012

Nitin Orayan, founder of Learning Space Foundation has made it his mission to help, support and educate children from rural villages in the district of Thane near Mumbai. One of his students, Monika, an intelligent and determined girl who scored extremely well in her pre-University Board exams, dreams of making a top class career in Hotel and Tourism, and wishes to travel all over the world.

Monika is one such girl from Ganeshpuri village on the outskirts of Mumbai, who excels in every aspect of life and has lots of energy and verve to go beyond the cruel imposition of fate - being without a father and with the parental attention of a mother who can just about make two ends meet at the end of the day…

Monika has emerged as a champion from the throes of helplessness. She has scored very high marks in both semesters and topped her batch. This girl has come a long way becoming the “apple of the eye” for all around - her professors at college, fellow-students, her supporters, and Learning Space members who played a major role in grooming her this far. Learning Space founder, Nitin Orayan is so proud to put her example out as a Learning Space success story for many girls like her to follow…

With your support Monika can complete her dream, finish her education and set an example for other girls from her village.

Please join and offer a small commitment that fits your purse and help Monika achieve the possible!
