At the tender age of 11, Lausi Kumari was forced to drop out from her school in Nawada District because her family was migrating to the brickfield in West Bengal for better economic opportunities. In hope of supporting her family she left to assist her parents in the Brickfield, take care of her younger siblings and manage the daily household chores.
When she first came to our Brickfield School (BFS) she stood out from the rest of the class due to her interest and determination but after conducting few Parents teachers meeting with her parents our teachers in Pujali could easily understand that they were found to be quite superstitious and reluctant especially with their girl child in school.
Whereas they were inclined to arrange her marriage as they felt there was no one to take care of her in back home at Nawada district and they were concern about her safety as they have to travel a lot.
But Lausia was very keen to continue studying and make something of herself. So our Director and the BFS team took it upon them-self to convince her parents and create the possibility of changing her life.
With Kolkata Mary Ward Social Centre initiatives she was finally admitted to K G V home. BFS team provided all the Teaching Learning Materials for her bright future. Now the child is studying in class VI in K G V home at Pakribarawan block in Nawada and dreams to become a teacher and help many more girls like her.
