"We live in a small and remote village. Our school is a very small school. But I was very confident that I would get good education and become successful in life with the help of my school and teachers. 

But Corona disturbed everything here, schools too were closed. I was feeling hopeless because my parents couldn't afford online education. It's too costly for us. I didn't know how would I compete with other students who have expensive e-learning resources.", says Tai Kolekar an ambitious school girl from Sangola.
