Voices from the Ground

Hanumathu, father of a role model adolescent girl from Yelamgera minces no words as he openly shares with us and other villagers that he will extend “full support” to #Sphoorthi activities. Hanumanthu being true to his word, ferries the girls to and fro from Yelamgera village to the Sphoorthi vacation classes, about 20 minutes away from the village. The vacation classes are organised to train girls for Xth Standard. Hanumanthu’s commitment is not just to his daughter but to all the girls who aspire to do well in school. He is one of the many #RoleModelParents who are a part of the movement for adolescent empowerment in Koppal Sphoorthi villages. “I will make my daughter study till she says enough!”, says Hanumanthu as he adjusts his seat to drive a bunch of happy faces for their tuition classes.

“In my class, children from SC/ST communities used to sit separately. I began to sit with them because I wanted to break that divide”

“When I went over to a friend’s place to have a casual chat, she started crying and said she couldn’t get sanitary pads. She shared taht the schools which used to provide Suchi pads, and the shops in the village were closed. The adolescent girls in rural areas are suffering under such circumstances, and I want the government authorities to respond to the needs of adolescent girls in Koppal by ensuring the supply of sanitary napkins,”
