Children Excel in X & XII Exams

Some of the Class 10 students off to sit one of their exams back in February 2019

It is with great pride and happiness when hard work is rewarded through the excellent academic results of the children of Udayan. Back in February 2019 nineteen of Udayan’s children appeared for their Class 10 and three of them for their Class 12 exams this year. Nineteen successfully passed their exams.

Of special mention is Sima Karmakar, who secured first division marks. Sima came to Udayan at an age of 7 years in 2010 from Durgapur after her father passed away – leaving behind a wife and four daughters. To get by, her mother took up odd jobs to sustain the family but found it difficult to make ends meet.

From the very beginning, she has been a very obedient and disciplined child. Sima not only excelled in studies but is music talented too. She was recently felicitated at the local Mohanpur Jagriti Sangha for her excellent performance at the boards.  Sima is now studying Arts in Class XI and hopes to build a career in the hospitality industry.

Education has always been a focus of Udayan. They strive to ensure that every child receives an education and learns one employable skill to become financially independent when they leave Udayan.

Most of these children come from extremely impoverished backgrounds and more often than not, they are the first generation learners in their family. To support them in this journey, private tutors visit Udayan every evening to work with the children after school hours, helping them in their weak and challenging subjects.

All the hard work is paying off and we applaud the efforts of the children of Udayan in doing them proud.
