Pune, 2nd June 2023: In a heartwarming display of determination and resilience, the children of garbage pickers in Pune have achieved exceptional success in their class 10 exams, despite facing numerous challenges such as poverty and a lack of educational resources at home. These inspiring individuals have not only made their families proud but have also brought recognition to the entire waste-picking community.

One standout success story is that of Monika Telang and her son. Despite the absence of support from Monika’s husband, she single-handedly took care of her son Athang while working as a garbage collector. To prepare for the exams, Athang relied on study materials received through the school’s WhatsApp group. Monika and Athang studied together, and their hard work paid off as Athang scored 64 percent and Monika achieved 51 percent. Monika expressed her joy and gratitude for Athang’s support and shared her aspirations of becoming a nurse while her son dreams of becoming a doctor.

Another remarkable individual is Jayesh Navgire, whose father left the family fourteen years ago. Jayesh and his sister live with their mother, Mandakini, who works multiple jobs to support them. Jayesh works in a Bisleri factory to contribute to his education expenses. Despite the challenges they face, Jayesh scored an impressive 64 percent.

Sonali Kisan Rathod, sister of Ram Rathod, faced the loss of her parents ten years ago. She was sent to an institute for education and completed her schooling from 1st to 10th grade there. Despite being away from her family, Sonali secured 65 percent marks in the exams.

The achievements of Jayesh, Sonali, and Athang demonstrate that determination and willpower can overcome any obstacle. Their success not only brings pride to their families but also serves as an inspiration to the entire waste-picking community.
