'We Owe It to Reliance Foundation to Succeed In Life'
Gulafsha Khan, Student, Mumbai
- Gulafsha and her friends live in Motilal Nehru Nagar, a clutch of low-income apartments in Mumbai. Motilal Nehru Nagar is located right on the periphery of the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC), the country’s financial hub. The physical proximity of Gulafsha’s home to BKC only serves to underscore the fact that these are two different worlds… Worlds that are brought together by the Dhirubhai Ambani International School.
- Every day, this school throws open its state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities to Gulafsha, her friends and 50 other children from Motilal Nehru Nagar they troop in at 3.30 pm for lessons in English and Maths by teachers of Akanksha, an NGO partner of Reliance Foundation.
- Gulafsha has been coming to the school for ten years now and is proud that she gets to use the facilities that are available to the children of great presonalities such as Shah Rukh Khan and Sachin Tendulkar.
- "Coming to this school and being educated in English has given us immense confidence to face the world. Earlier, we used to be afraid to talk to people, now we can engage with anybody. We are grateful to Reliance Foundation and Nita Didi for this opportunity. We will work hard to succeed in life. That is the best way to show our gratitude to Reliance Foundation”-says Gulafsha, egged on by her friends.
