Vashishta Samrat is pursuing Ph.D. in Child Rights and Child Labour.He belongs to Bihar and has completed his graduation and Post Graduation from B.N. Mandal University in Economics.He was merely 7 years old when he was pushed in domestic Child Labour. In 1998 he was rescued and was rehabilitated at Bal Ashram. Belonging to a very poor family, his parents are MGNREGA daily wage workers.
Extremely poor financial conditions made it very difficult for Vashishta to complete his Phd as he could not bear the expenses of the education. He contacted Joy Story and we readily offered a support of Rs.5000/- per month so that nothing stops him from completing his education.
Today Vashisht is pursuing his education without any stress and is confidant to complete his PHD with flying colors and get into a respectable profession and put an end to his family's financial problems.
