Dear Darling Friends,
Name – Anjali Varma.
Known as – Anju Rani
Age – 15 years, 2 months
Edu – Passed 10th – 70%
Home – Daulatpur, Haryana.
*Mission* – Eradicate child labour from Haryana.
Mentor – Gurmail Singh Binder.
What makes her so special?
*Her life is unlike other teenagers life*.
What makes it commendable is that this is *HER CHOICE*.
She has no time for flings.
She has no time to complain.
She has no time to be lazy.
She has no time compare herself with others.
She is incomparable.
*Milestone* – She has already admitted 171 child labours in various schools in Haryana.
*WOW Factor* – EVERY SUNDAY, Anju and her team ( UDAAN ) leave for various villages. Their mission is four fold.
1. Identify child labours.
2. Convince the parents to send the child labour to school. ( They have even gotten beaten up in the process ).
3. Convince the school to give these kids admission. (Herculean Task).
4. Find a donor for fees and uniforms for these kids. ( They are used to people doubting their intentions and seeing them as scam artists ).
*Mind Blowing* – Anju’s father is a truck driver. Yet, he donates close to RS 10,000/- per month to support Anju and her team. God only knows how he does this? *
*Amazing parental support, right?* Makes me introspect, “Am I doing enough?”
*IMPACT on me* – Have you ever felt *PURE* after you met someone? I felt that way after meeting her.
Have you ever felt *MORE DETERMINED* after you met someone? I felt that way after meeting her.
Have you ever felt *SMALL* after you met someone? I felt that way after meeting her.
Have you ever felt *PRIVILEDGED* after you met someone? I felt that way after meeting her.
Sharing a pic of team *UDAAN* with you. Will cherish this picture forever.
With love, prayers and exceptional wishes,
Imagine, when we wake up, we are given only what we had thanked for.
