This Day of the Girl Success Story comes from Jeyaruth, in her own words:
I’m Miss T. Jeyaruth Krishnaveni and I benefited from the project in Pussellawa. There are five members in my family including myself. My father is a day worker and my mother is a housewife. I have a brother and a sister. I’m the eldest in my family. My brother and sister also studied in the project and now they are also in a good position. My sister is a teacher and my brother works in a bank. I’m a science teacher. We live in Wahugapitiya.
I studied in this project for nearly five years. I learned a lot through this project. I improved my English knowledge and now I’m continuing my higher studies (B.Sc.) in English Medium in an Open University. The knowledge I gained from this project is very useful to my life and my studies. My school fees were paid for me and it was a great help to me to improve other subjects as well as English.
My aim is to be a good teacher and to transfer my knowledge to all of my students. I like to help all the poor children as much as possible. I like to help the AED project (CEI in Sri Lanka) with pleasure. Thank you for giving me this unmeasureable, valuable education.
Yours faithfully, Jeyaruth
