“Last year I met Dashrath Rathod. Now 24 years old, he told me he had come to an MMC centre when he was five. He was working as a tea boy on a construction site and it was the first time he had seen a school. He had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, to class, but the faith the MMC teachers put in him eventually paid off. He began to study, and even when he moved to another site, he continued to go to school, with MMC’s support. Today he is an advocate. He showed me that all the children need is a bit of encouragement and a chance. And that’s what MMC gives them. They do the rest.”
