Help A Child gave wings to my ambition. Today, I’m a Range Forest Officer and supporting my family.
Shashikala S Bhumar comes from a challenging background. With five younger sisters and parents working as daily-wage agricultural labourers, she found her way out to study rather than get married according to her parents wishes. After completing her 12th standard education in Science she approached Help A Child to support her further studies. An MSc graduate in Chemistry, Shashikala worked hard at her competitive examinations and is a Range Forest Officer with the Government of Karnataka today. She supports her parents and her siblings education.
