SHEFALI GAONKAR

My name is Shefali. I live at Khandola, Ponda. My father Ulhas is a casual labourer and my mother is a housewife. We are four members in our family. The only source of income was what my father gets from his job. So, our financial situation was very bad. Besides, my younger brother and I were students and we were in need of money to pursue our education.
Fortunately, Indian Students Educational Aid Foundation which was helping poor students like me, had its office in Siolim. I applied for a scholarship and was selected. This was in the year 2011. I completed my Dip. Ed. with the scholarship provided. Presently, I am working as a teacher in “Shree Saraswati High School”, Ponda, Goa.
I am very grateful to my sponsors and Indian Students Educational Aid Foundation for helping and supporting me financially.
