Abha began going to the VIDYA School in Gurgaon when she was in preschool. In 2013, she lost her father to TB. Her mother’s lone paltry salary as a domestic worker was not enough to sustain their family of five. With the emotional and academic support of her teachers, Abha continued her education and began work as a domestic helper to assist her mother in making ends meet. Balancing school, work and caring for her siblings was a grueling task for such a young person. Her academics began to slip and she struggled to keep afloat.
She is now in the 10th stnadard and her grades are gradually improving. She takes part in all school activities and even qualified to run in a marathon in Delhi.Today, Abha is concentrating on her studies and dreams of becoming an architect. She is blessed with a good soul, kind heart and determination that will move mountains.
