They came from poor and broken families, but keeping all the odds aside, they scored good marks in the SSC. The results were released on Sunday evening.

The students, who studied in National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Schools, celebrated the joy with NCLP Krishna district Project Director D. Anjaneya Reddy, field officer B. Prasanna, SKCV principal A. Keshava and other staff.

The children, rescued from different places, were admitted in NCLP Schools in pathetic conditions, and brought them back to mainstream later, the PD said and offered sweets to the students.

“I am a native of Srikakulam district, and came to Vijayawada in 2001. The staff rescued me in the railway station and shifted to a home. I studied in NCLP School and was staying in SKCV Children’s Trust, at Bhavanipuram, in the city,” said A. Pawan Kalyan, who scored nine Grade Point Average (GPA) in tenth class.

Mr. Kalyan said that he want to become an automobile engineer and thanked the NCLP and the SKCV Trust for providing education to him.

Another student, Sk. Ravi Kumar, who secured 8.2 GPA, said that he want to become an Income Tax officer, and thanked the trust coordinator P. Raju for encouraging him.

Students — P. Mariyya, V. Praveen, J. Bhadri and P. Anjaneyulu— scored 8 and 7.5 GPA respectively and want to become police officers. Mr. Mariyya recalled how he came from Bhimavaram in West Godavari district some eight years ago, joined in NCLP School and the staff brought him up in SKCV Trust.

“I ran away from home in 2009, due to family problems. I rescued and admitted me in NCLP School. With the encouragement of Mr. Anjaneya Reddy I completed SSC and I want to become an aeronautical engineer,” said N. Dharmendra of Bihar.

Speaking to The Hindu, the PD said that NCLP is running 16 schools and is providing education to 550 dropouts, run away, never enrolled and the poor children in Krishna district.

“In the last five years, more than 600 students, who studied in NCLP Schools were mainstreamed and were admitted in various government and private schools. Many students studied in our schools are pursuing higher education now,” said Ms. Prasanna.

NCLP will help the students to join in colleges and pursue their education, she said.
