The story of Renuka
Renuka, a visually impaired girl born in a poor family at Abdaravalli village in Haveri district of Karnataka. She lost her father in her early childhood days.
We found her while she was doing her PUC. We counseled her and admitted in Samarthanam hostel. We supported her in all ways to grow personally and professionally.
She successfully completed her graduation in humanities and is now pursuing her post graduation in women studies. I want work in an NGO after my post graduation and do something for women empowerment. She decided what she want to do in future.
