Poultry Farm Dreams
I have met quite a few interesting children at these schools.One of them in particular was this child.
I generally ask the children in the classes about what they want to become when they grow up. The most common things I hear are doctors and engineers amongst the boys and the girls are mostly nurses and teachers.
This kid wanted to have his own poultry farm and believed that the education would help him achieve that. The others in the class laughed at his answer, but I did not. Here was this one child who was so clear on his goal, that I am pretty confident that he will end up fulfilling his dream.
The schools in these regions of rural Bihar has a huge dropout percentage. Making the children realize the value of an education and the ability to dream an attainable dream is a challenge.
I am eager to help out this kid in getting his dream fulfilled in whatever way possible.
