Anjitha from Mundakkayam, Kerala is doing her 1st year BSc Nursing course in a Nursing school in Bangalore. Her father is a daily wage laborer and mother works as a contract employee, neither of them having regular work. Her sister Anjaly is a student. The family has barely enough income to sustain their daily expenses.
Anjitha joined college paying Rs.35,000, the bare minimum needed for admissions. Her 1st year exam is in August, and she needs to pay the full fee of Rs. 1.5 lakhs to attend the examinations.
The family is struggling to raise money during this time of the pandemic, when jobs are difficult to come by. They approached MicroCharity for financial assistance.
