Akkamahadevi Gavisiddappa Chapiyavara from the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Yelahanka, Karnataka, secured the first position with 88.16% in the Class 10 board examination last year (2018-2019).
In addition to preparing for her Class 12 examination (science with computer science), Akkamahadevi is also coaching and helping the girls at the Yelahanka Chatralayam with their studies.
Akkamahadevi shares a small testimonial with us.
“Namaste. I am Akkamahadevi from, Karnataka. I hail from a poor family. I am currently studying and staying at the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralaya, Yelahanka, Bengaluru, Karnataka.
I have been staying in this hostel for the last seven years and I am very comfortable out here. AIM for Seva has been providing me with all facilities for my studies that include skill development, tailoring, yoga, learning to make diyas and paper bags and various other activities.
For the last seven years, we were going to school by the local bus. Now, AIM for Seva has arranged transportation for us. Without such support services provided by AIM for Seva, I wouldn’t have been able to score a distinction in the Class 10 examination and pursue my PUC (pre-university college) at a well known institute in Yelahanka.
I am happy to share that recently I have started to coach Class 10 students for maths and they are satisfied with my coaching. I am thankful to my hostel coordinator, Mataji (Swamini Suddhavidyananda Saraswati ji) for giving me an opportunity to coach junior students.
I thank AIM for Seva, all the staff, Mataji, and all other supporters for the help rendered in my goal to reach the highest rank. I would like to assure that I will give back my support to AIM for Seva once I reach and achieve my goal.
If I had not joined AIM for Seva, my life would have been meaningless. Hence, I thank Pujya Swamiji (Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Founder, AIM for Seva), Managing Trustee (Smt. Sheela Balaji) for this noble cause that caters to under privileged students like me who come from rural families. Namaste.”
