Caterpillar To Butterfly
“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” — Richard Bach
After completing 8th grade in 2015, Arshiya’s parents forced her to discontinue her studies as they feared for her safety. The school was far off and as daily wagers, the parents were not able to afford the transportation as well.
Arshiya heard about Oasis India’s dropouts project from her friends who had completed their 10th and 12th grade there. Our team visited her family and counselled them to help Arshiya register in the Andhra Pradesh Open School Society. Now she is preparing for her 10th grade exam. She said, “I am thankful to Oasis for helping me continue my studies. I did not like being at home. My friends and the Oasis family played a huge role in inspiring me to take this up.”
