Giving People A Reason To Change
26 Years old Putul Maity is a jovial girl. But since birth she is suffering from vitamin deficiency syndrome. Being a girl of a miserable family she was deprived from her very needed treatment and primary facility of daily life. Her world was nothing but a darkness. In this clouded situation her parents got a ray of hope when they came to Asha Bhavan Centre. They brought her and admitted in our residential home. Then she was 12 years old. She was improving gradually with our special care. Completing the primary education she went back to her own shelter. But our support was not finished. We had run our support. She was given educational materials and a tri-cycle for her better mobility. We are very pleased to say that Putul had appeared in higher secondary examination (WBCHSE), 2012 and successfully completed it.
