Pratibha

Please help us reach out to many more potential talents like Pratibha.

Pratibha never let her hearing impairment come in the way of her confidence and aspiration. A student in M. Com's 2nd year, she is a favourite among her commerce professors in her college in the small town of Dindori. They are sure that Pratibha would comfortably pass the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) exam. The fact that her hearing ability had become negligible all of a sudden in grade 7 never affected her results. Such is she.

However, the cost of her treatment had always been a challenge. Her professors and classmates raised the expenses for the last surgery, which enabled her to listen from one ear. Her parents, who are daily wage labourers earning 150 rupees each per day, could not have afforded 35000 rupees. Moreover, Pratibha has two younger brothers who are yet to complete their education.

The PRIF scholarship provided to Prathiba to complete her education has given her and her family a small window to plan for the future. Still, it is just the beginning of the kind of support system we want to provide our young dreamers.

They did it, with just a little help
