ANJU

Anju is a very hard working, disciplined and dedicated girl.  9 years old and in her second year as an NCEP scholar, she passed all her subjects last year with minimal absences, and demonstrated a passion for learning that was praised by her teachers.  Both she and her sister Junu are supported by their single mother – their father died several years ago – who works a low-paying factory job, and would be unable to financially support her daughters’ education without NCEP’s support.  While extremely supportive of Junu and Anju’s education, their mother, who never attended school, is unable to assist them with their schoolwork; based on the recommendation of Anju’s teachers and NCEP volunteers, Anju has been enrolled this year for some supplementary tutoring.
