July 25, 2012 - J P Nagar, Bangalore
Ms. Nagarathna M (18 years) is the eldest daughter of Mr. Manjunath and Mrs. Jayamma.  She has a younger brother who is mentally challenged and a younger sister who studies in the 10th std. They live in Jambusavari Dinne, J.P. Nagar, 8th Phase, Bangalore – 76.  Her father Manjunath is a coolie worker and her mother Jayamma is sick who underwent two surgeries already and is a home maker.

Nagarathna is a meritorious student throughout her schooling days. Nagarathna passed her SSLC with 81.92% of marks and her PUC with 76%.  She appeared for the CET and got Govt. quota admission for Engineering in KS Institute of Technology, Kanakapura Main Road, Bangalore.  The government fee is Rs. 38, 500/- which she has to pay by July 30, 2012.  Her seat in the college was confirmed by Karnataka Examination Authority (KEA) only on July 25th. If she fails to pay the fees by July 30, she will loose the seat. She is looking for support from people of goodwill to support her to do her Engineering which will be a great dream come true.

Her father is trying to raise about Rs. 10,000 (which has to be through money lender with high interest) and few other good hearted people have promised about Rs. 15,000. She requested Rs. 13,500 from MicroCharity.

Microcharity approved the fund request of Rs. 13,500.  But open to receive more funds so that we can stop the father from going to money lenders who charge very high interest rate. Deadline for raising the fund is July 30, 2012.
July 27, 2012 - Course Fee is paid at the last minute!
The news paper today had a surprise for Nagarathna and also for us. The last date for the fee is not July 30th, but  TODAY. Nagarathna met us at Bangalore with her father. She could arrange only Rs. 15,000. And MicroCharity didn’t have enough fund for the rest of the fees. Anyways, we made an immediate approval for the additional fund, otherwise she will loose the seat. One of our volunteers borrowed the fund required and also made a Demand Draft just in time. Tears were running down the cheeks of her father as we handed over the demand draft. Amount paid: Rs. 26,540.
