Sangita lives with her parents and two sisters. She is the eldest one. Her father is a private tutor and her mother is a housemaker. Both of the sisters are studying with a pure science background. Three sisters are sharp students. Their father tried hard to make up three daughters’ educational expenses. Besides private tuition, he also worked in a grocery shop to earn something. Sangita also did private tuitions to carry on her study, after the H.S. examination.
Sangita passed Madhyamik in 2014 with 91.71% and H.S. in 2016 with 84.6%. In 2017 she took admission in Govt. College of Engineering and Textile Technology, at Srirampur, Hooghly. She passed Engineering from there with 9.15 out of 10 DGPA.
The educational expenses of the three sisters have been very difficult to permit with only their father’s private tuition which is the main income source of Sangita’s family. Besides, when she was admitted to Engineering College she found herself unable to pay the monthly rent of mess near her college. In that difficult time, she came in contact with Prof. Dulal Sir at Jadavpur UniversityProf. Dulal Sir told her about Mukti’s TSS program. She applied instantly and got the chance of sponsorship through the TSS interview. She got the scholarship from Ms. Mitra Das. Now she is successfully completed B.Tech in the year 2021 with a good position.
Sangita got job opportunities in more than three companies before the publication of her final result in the Engineering College.

She also wishes to complete MBA in the future.
She used to write thanking letters to her sponsor Ms. Mitra Das. She came to know about the mission and vision of Mukti’s founder Mr. Shankar Halder. She said, “The story of Mr. Shankar Halder inspired me much. If a student wants to get success in life nothing can stop her, but the craggy way of the journey towards success becomes smooth when someone forwards a helping hand. Mukti did this for me and I will never forget it.”
She added, “Undoubtedly it comes as a duty to me too, that I will also support some other students as I was given once by Mukti.”
We wish Sangita all progress and happiness in the future.

During this period Tithi’s father found himself unable to support her meal, books, dress and other hostel expenses. The situation came in such a way that Tithi had likely to stop her further learning. But in that hard time, her school teacher Krishnogopal Mondal reassumed Tithi’s father and told him the importance of Mukti’s TSS program. Tithi applied for TSS and got the chance of sponsorship through an interview. She was sponsored by Educate Now. Educate Now was sponsoring her until the course is completed.
After completion of GNM training in 2021, she ran in search of a job and came into contact with a metron nurse of Shree Vishudhanand Saraswati Marwari Hospital (SVS) Marowari Hospital, Sealdah. Finally, she started the job at that hospital in November 2021 as a staff nurse. She can now permit the living expenses of her mess in Garia with the salary she gets.
She is very happy with the job of nursing, as well as becoming self-dependent. She said about Mukti, “I know of many students like me who might stop their study without the help of Mukti. Mukti is helping those who are struggling with poverty to continue their education.”
Tithi expresses her wish to help at least one poor student in the future if she gets any govt. job or make sufficient income. Tithi also wishes to complete BSC nursing in the future.
We wish her all good success in life.
