Deepa – a mother of three children (two daughters and one son), is a Yemalur based hustler who wakes up to take care of her family and many other households. The earlier part of her day goes in packing lunch boxes for her family and a bunch of extended family members, and then for the later part she sets out to working at several households around Yemalur.
MRN Foundation – an initiative by Shri Murugesh Nirani, Minister of Mines and Geology Karnataka, awards a scholarship to young and meritorious Jayashree, whose mother Deepa raises her family single-handedly by working at several households

Deepa’s fight for a better life gets fiercer by the minute. She recognised the need for education that will help her children rise from these dire situations, and has hence pledged to give them the best of opportunities. Every rupee that she earns, she saves – only to be able to spend on her daughters’ education (given, her son is only 7 years old). She sends both her daughters to reputed schools that are affiliated to ICSE syllabus. As of now, she is unable to send her son to an equally reputed school, however her immediate focus is to help her eldest daughter enter into her Xth grade and ensure her pivotal year at schooling doesn’t get effected.
