Due to widespread poverty, higher education in India is still a far-fetched dream for several deserving students. In our effort to contribute to this cause, Dream a Difference came across one such student.
Rahul cleared his 12th standard in May, 2016 with 80.6% and best four aggregate 86.25%. The youngest in his family of six, Rahul’s father sells tea in a small stall while his mother is a home-maker. Having a very small family income, his parents couldn’t even dream of maintaining the expenses of his higher studies.
An intelligent student, his report cards and strong opinion of his teachers stand testimony to the potential Rahul has. Rahul is the only one to be able study beyond Class 12th in his family. Since the time he was in class 8th, he has also been tutoring students of classes 4th to 9th to support his family’s meagre income. With his hard work and futuristic vision, he was able to clear the entrance examination for engineering. However, it was still not enough to gather sufficient funds for an admission into a good college to pursue his graduation.
Dream a Difference took the onus to support him in his endeavor and getting enrolled into college. Rahul is now admitted in Northern India Engineering College of Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and is undertaking B. Tech in Electricals and Communications.
Rahul dreams to be successful in the field of IT. Dream a Difference wishes him all the best for his future plans and will continue to provide support to him and all such deserving students.
