Boena Sita

Boena Sita joined AshaKiran in 2013 when she was in 6th grade.

She comes from Gummidivalasa, a small tribal village. They have to walk at least 5 km to access the nearest public transport. She lives with her mother, an agricultural laborer and her elder brother, a school dropout. Her father passed away when she was only 2 years old.

She says that she would not have reached 10th grade but for AshaKiran. In their village, they have a primary school but the children have to walk 10 km each day if they want to continue beyond primary school, so most children do not go to high school.

At AshaKiran, she is able to study well because of the good facilities and supportive environment. The staff are always encouraging. She said that she has improved her English language by interacting with the German volunteers. She would love to be become a health care professional (doctor or nurse) and serve her community where many people are dying due to otherwise treatable conditions but because of lack of basic medical facilities.
