Beneeshya, daughter of Bose & Shobha from Cherthala, Kerala, needs our help in giving wings to her dreams. She is doing 2nd year Aircraft Maintenance Engineering course (AME) at Regional Institute of Aviation, Thiruvanathapuram and is struggling to pay her college fee. Her father, Bose is a fisherman and her mother, Shobha goes for household work. Bose cannot go to the sea everyday as he is has kidney problems. If he goes for a day, he would need to take rest for next 3-4 days. Shobha takes care of the household expenses with the little she earns through her housemaid jobs.

Beneeshya passed 12th standard with 75% marks in spite of the difficult situation at home, and wanted to be an aircraft engineer. Her father and mother tried to discourage her as they didn’t have any means to pay the college fee. But Beneeshya convinced her parents that she wanted to join the course, and paid her first year fee with a loan that Shobha took from Ayalkootam, a small community micro-finance project.

Beneeshya’s tuition fee is Rs.60,000 per semester for a 3-year course. MicroCharity plans to support the tuition fee for the next 2 years.
