Address: Bharistad Naga Slum
Daksha wants to be a Teacher when she grows up, so that she can look after little children. She tells us that her favorite things in life are to learn and help people. She is a very lovely girl who does a lot of work around her home to help her mother. Her mother works as a cleaner in a Bungalow and her father works as a ‘Choutuk’ (a handyman, when there is work available) and on their incomes alone it is not enough to send all their children to school. This is why Daksha and two of her sisters are part of the Earn N’ Learn program, and this involvement helps to support their family and broaden the opportunities available to them. Daksha attends a local high school and loves her studies, which she spends a lot of energy on each day. For fun she likes to sing and dance with her sisters. Although she doesn’t really like to “play”, she does love to hang out with her friends, chatting and talking about anything they can think of!
