NAME: ISRAT
FATHER’S NAME: MEHMOOD
MOTHER’S NAME: HASAN BASRI
VILLAGE: NAGINA
NUMBER OF SIBLINGS: 9
TOTAL NUMBER OF FAMILY MEMBERS: 13

Israt joined our center in the year 2002 and completed her primary education in 2005. Israt’s family is in the business of making parandis (artificial plaits). These parandis are made by the entire family and are sold to the retail shopkeepers.

Mehmood (Israt’s father) has studied till eighth standard and Israt’s mother, Hasan Basri went to a mosque for her initial and only education and Urdu is the only language she can claim to be literate in. Though Israt’s grandmother, Jummi never went to school still Israt recalls that her grandmother inspired her to join AGS’s Alternative Innovative Education center. Israt is the third child among ten children. Israt’s three sisters are studying with our AIE center but her brother attends a private school.

Israt feels very proud of herself today because she is the first educated female of her family. Today Israt fondly remembers her Educational Volunteer ‘Rajkumariji’ and is of the opinion that she not only gained knowledge but also confidence, self esteem, self worth from our AIE center. She says she still remembers her first day in the center when she entered as a shy and timid girl but today she is happy and proud that she is more aware and confident than what she was before joining our center.

  • Israt likes reading out letters, newspaper, storybooks to her younger siblings and her grandmother. Israt jokingly tells that she can bully her younger siblings now that she can use fairy tales as bait.

     

    Israt feels that the regular sessions on health, nutrition, sanitation etc held at our centers proved to be of great help to her as now she can give tips to her mother, other women of the village on safe drinking water, diseases (and measures to prevent them), cleanliness and personal hygiene.

     

    At the moment Israt is content with tutoring and assisting her younger brother in his homework but she wants to get more certificates like the one she got from our center after clearing fifth standard but her mother doesn’t want her to join the formal system. Israt says that she would be the happiest person the day she’d get an opportunity to clear tenth standard from AGS’s AIE center.


    NAME: BEGUM BEGUM
    FATHER’S NAME: HANIF
    MOTHER’S NAME: JAIBUN
    VILLAGE: NAGINA
    NUMBER OF SIBLINGS: 5
    TOTAL FAMILY MEMBERS: 8

Begum joined our AIE center in the year 2003. Before joining our center begum studied in a government school. She cleared fifth standard from our center in the year 2005. Begum is the eldest among four sisters and two brothers. Her father Hanif is a vegetable vendor and her mother stitches clothes to contribute her share in the family’s incomes. Hanif (Begum’s father) has studied up to tenth standard but her mother Jaibun can only read Urdu as she got her education from a mosque.

Begum recalls that her joining AGS’s AIE center at Nagina was one of the loveliest adventures she has ever had. She told AGS’s team that she joined AGS because her friends wanted to pursue their education from our centers and Begum didn’t want to stay without her friends in the school. She laughingly mimics her father’s reactions when he got to know that Begum had started attending AGS’s AIE center. Since the center was just attended by girls Begum did not face any further objections.
