Gender Equality is at the heart of the EU!
We continue to work towards the cause through various initiatives.
Here is the story of Deepthi, whose dreams have been unlocked:
Deepthi is the daughter of Jagadish, one of the auto-drivers from an initiative funded by the EU in Bangalore. Earlier this year, Deepthi appeared for her 10th Board examination where she performed exceptionally well by scoring 603/625 marks.
Her success has brought immense joy and pride to her entire family. She attributes it to her parents who have always encouraged her to study and participate in several activities besides academics.
With an unstable financial condition, her father worked in a garment factory earlier. He then with the help of an EU-funded project was able to buy a new auto and became a part of the cooperative society of drivers. Her family's financial condition has improved since then and her father is confident and determined to support her in continuing her studies.
Deepthi wishes to study further and become a Doctor. Currently, she has taken admission into the Pre-University College.
