I am delighted to share that the students supported by our Disability programme have done wonders in Maharashtra State Secondary Board Exams. This year, 12 visually impaired girls from TMF supported, Jagriti school for blind girls in Pune, passed the exam with flying colors. Seema Kharad topped her school by securing an impressive 90%, Snehal Patange stood 2nd by scoring 85.20% and Durga Yevale came 3rd by scoring 84.40%.
The hard work and determination of these girls is unstoppable. Both Seema and Durga are very keen to go for higher education and learn humanities. Seema, a chess enthusiast wants to prepare for UPSC and dreams of becoming an IAS officer. Our second topper Snehal loves to dance and wants to do social service by becoming an advocate. Durga too loves to play chess and plans to take a road to teaching by taking the role of a professor.
Friends, I am proud of the girls who are blurring the lines between ‘abled’ and ‘disabled’. At Tech Mahindra Foundation we believe that disability is not an impediment to academic success and thus empowering Persons with Disability becomes our mission.
We wish all the best to students like Seema, Durga and Snehal who are working hard to conquer their disabilities.
