Kusala Projects Supporting Children in Bodhgaya, India

Meet One of Our Students

Sangeeta is eleven years old and has been attending Elsa Primary School since March, 2015. She lives in Jamna Biya, a small village one kilometre from the school. Her father is a farmer and her mother is a housewife. There are eight children in the family, six girls and two boys. 

Sangeeta is diligent in her studies, with English being her favourite subject. When asked what she likes about Elsa Primary School, she replied ‘good education and food’. Her suggestions for improving the school are uniforms and computers.

Away from school, Sangeeta enjoys singing and playing with friends. The most important people in her life are her parents, and the person she admires most is Mahatma Gandhi, father of the Indian nation.

Sangeeta aspires to be a school teacher. It may be an ideal vocation for her as she is happy to share the responsibility of preparing both the classroom and meals for the other students. Hopefully, she can achieve her goal!
