Khushi Sriwastav

Baby Khushi Sriwastav was living in Kota a colony of Raipur the capitol city of Chhattisgarh. Her father’s name is Ram Sriwastav. Her mother Sunita Sriwastav died in an accident when khushi was just 6 month old. After death of Khushi’s mother her father left her with grandparents. He never came back to look after her. Khushi’s grandparents are poor and they always worried about her future. During survey of never enrolled children they came to know about residential hostel. They became very happy when they came to know that Government provides free education with residential facilities.

Khushi’ grandparents admitted her in residential hostel no. 1 at Raipur which is being operated by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. Khushi is now happy with other children. She describes in her own words “I never thought that I could get education after being deprived by my mummy and papa. I really want to thank my grandparents and teachers whose affection made me strong. I am happy here in this residential hostel with friends. It is better than a home for me.”
