Help Sunitha to go to college

Dear Friends,

Hope you are doing excellent. This is Sonika.  It is just my small attempt to bring one of the young student’s aspirations to your attention. During my recent visit to India, I happened to meet a young girl who had to pause her studies after 10th standard as her parents couldn’t afford the higher education expenses. Her name is Sunitha, she is presently working as a daily labor in a small firm at Gollapudi. She is enthusiastic to attend Intermediate College given the opportunity.

Sunitha scored 380 out of 600 (GPA 6.0) in 10th standard, graduated in 2016 from Polavaram Govt. School in Telugu Medium. I met her family in-person, they are very nice people. Both her parents are not educated and on a low non-skilled jobs. Her father works as a watchman and her mother works as a housemaid to support their family of five.  Sunitha has two elder sisters. Both of them had to break their studies for the same reason that they couldn’t afford.

I strongly believe that helping Sunitha to resume her studies would certainly bring light to her future, needless to say to her family as well. I am confident that she would show a commanding performance in her Intermediate studies even after a yearlong gap. Upon thorough research, we are considering following Intermediate College at Gollapudi so that she could be a day scholar, which is a less expensive option than living on-campus. I will be watching over her performance and college payment schedules once she starts going to college.

Institution Name:                  Sri Gayatri Academy
Course:                                   Intermediate - MPC
Tuition Fee:                            Rs. 60,000 for two years

I hope you would contribute to her bright future. Every penny counts! Thank you for your gratitude!!
