Our triumphant trio

PNLIT is delighted by the performance of our three students in the II P.U.C. exams. All of them got over 70% with Deepubai getting 75%, Sadiqa 71% and Ramya 72%. 
Living in the hutments on the lake bund, they joined PNLIT’s Classes at the Lake program (Teach program) three years ago. Thanks to V.P. Karthik, now pursuing PhD at IIT, Chennai, Anisha Kaul and Swathi Jayakumar, the girls’ performances were beyond their own expectations in Std 10 as well. 
Our volunteer teachers not only coached them but also encouraged them to dream big. Deepu wants to do engineering and is awaiting the CET results. Sadiqa wants to become a medical doctor while Ramya is looking to become a Chartered Accountant like her teacher, Lalitha Kamath. 
Kudos to these girls and more so to their teachers who took time out from their busy schedules to help out these children. We salute each of them – Lalitha Kamath, Ramakrishna Rao, Hema Nair from South City, Sudha Veeramani, Vijetha Sanjay, Dr. C.S.N Iyer, Seema Doraiswamy from Brigade Millennium, Vivek Krishna from RBI Layout and Ancy Tom all the way from BTM Layout. Ancy is particularly delighted with her student, Deepu, for scoring 98% in Computer Science. A big thanks to all the teachers.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela
The PNLIT team, Deepu, Sadiqa and Ramya
