Educational Qualification : B.A.(Hons), M.A. English, M.Phil, Ph.D.

Work in field of literacy : I have been working for the promotion of higher education for girls among the neglected and marginalised sections of Jalandhar Cantonment and more than 100 villages of the periphery. Most of the girls coming here are the first generation learners . The specially abled girls are also given training and education, as per their potential and aptitude. Being a born teacher- I have been taking ‘Bal Vikas’ classes (Education in Human Values) for students below 18 years with the aim to inculcate moral values in them so that they grow into fine human beings- who are always willing to help others and make this world a better place. During the summers- special skill development classes are organised for the school dropouts who can’t pursue higher education. Such girls are given training in vocational subjects to achieve financial independence.

No of Beneficiaries : 6500 in 25 years

Social Impact : The passed out girls work towards nation building by working as teachers, decision makers, technocrats, artists, chartered accountant, lady sarpanches(Village heads) etc. The economic development brought through the ladies help the family society and nation grow at large.

Fund Outlay : 1000000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : By charging nominal fee from the students.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : with the education there is awareness among the girls about their rights, duties, responsibilities. Today sky is the limit for educated girls. The educated mothers bring the positive change in the family by giving good care, good education, good hygiene to the members of the family.
