Guntur golden girls blossom to set a shining example for all HEAL students

FIVE young girls, who all came from desperate and difficult family backgrounds into the caring lap of the HEAL family at Guntur Children’s Village, have completed their B.Tech college studies with flying colours.

With high pass marks ranging between 70 to 85%, the hard work of Yasaswini, Supraja, Lakshmi, Anusha and Aswini has paid off.

Assisted by the invaluable support of HEAL sponsors, these five young ladies have blossomed to earn placements through campus selections in different corporate companies at Bangalore and Hyderabad.

“This is an occasion that every member of the HEAL family feels proud,” said Children’s Village president Chowdary Yarlagadda.

“Since its inception HEAL has been committed to bringing light and hope into the lives of many abandoned and unfortunate children. During this long journey a number of such children have completed their education and passed out of HEAL to settle down into a new life, some by entering into bright careers and others getting married.

“Here are five young girls who, from desperate family conditions, entered into the loving and caring lap of the HEAL family, worked very hard under its umbrella with the support of many philanthropists and sponsors and completed their B.Tech successfully.

“They always express their heartfelt gratitude that they have come to this stage because of the kind concern and the abundant love and affection showered by HEAL under the stewardship of Dr Satya Prasad and here at the Children’s Village by Dr Manga Devi.

“They have promised that they will definitely come back to their cozy home one day and be of some support to the needy and little ones of the family.

“And the good news from our Guntur village does not stop there. Two of our senior children Vijaya Lakshmi and Bhavani, who have been with us through their childhood, completed their Polytechnic with 91% and 78% respectively. Vijaya Lakshmi topped her branch and college as well.

“Both girls have qualified in ECET (entrance into engineering) and will be admitted into second year Engineering as they have already completed their three-year Diploma.”

Other senior students well worthy of mention include Chandra Sekhar and Ravali have completed their third year B.Tech this year, while Prem Kumar Gurrala, Anusha Vajja and Pulla Rao Perusomulla have completed their three-year degree courses.

Jyothi Mahankali, Lavanya Chilaka and Mariya Rani Chilka completed their vocational course in tailoring and embroidery. Jesudas Medabalimi and Upendra Bondelapati finished their ITI and Vijay Kumar Voleti completed his Lab Technician course.

Last year HEAL admitted 10 children into Polytechnic and they have now completed their first year. Prathyusha scored a remarkable 94.6%, Kumar Chaitanya recorded 87%, Jhansi Prasanna and Bhargavi each scored 75% and Ssiva Kumari passed with 75%. All the rest performed well to register marks in between 60 and 70%. Meanwhile, Lakshmi Tirupatamma passed her second year Polytechnic with 77%.

All 17 children from HEAL Children’s Village who sat their 10th Standard exams passed with good scores. Ambedkar, Deena, Lakshmi Jyothi and Harshitha secured 9.5 grade points out of 10, another seven scored between 9 and 9.5 and the remaining children were between 8 and 9.

This year, seven girls sat the Intermediate exam. All of them passed with good grades and Pushpa Durga stood first in her college.

“We feel that all these results are really wonderful achievements,” said Chowdary. “Let us hope that this great success rejuvenates the spirit of all the young and old of our HEAL family and rededicate ourselves with more commitment and compassion working together for the fulfillment of HEAL’s mission of serving the needy.”
