Success story
This is the success story of Sunita Kumari, a resident of Silli block, Ranchi, Jharkhand. She started her studies in Ekal Vidyalaya and was a regular student in the beginning. Later when she completed her graduation and cleared Jharkhand Academic Council examination, Sunita took training for nursing, as she wanted to dedicate her education and skills to social service. She is now serving in the MGM Medical College & Hospital, Jamshedpur, as a staff nurse and thanks Ekal for bringing the change in her life through motivation and inspiration.
