Harishchandra has never been to school and works as a helper in a factory at Thane. He doesn’t want his son, Tejas, to suffer the same fate. Tejas’ mother found it difficult to send him to school until her neighbor spoke to her about Jeevan Asha. Initially low in confidence, Tejas has transitioned from being reticent to a participative and vocal child. His parents are very grateful for the love and care given to him at the DCC.
