Our Community Organizer, Baby Devi from Hadiabad, Bihar, is a perfect fit for the role entrusted. Apart from conducting regular social classes and community events, she is watchful to individual problems in her community and manages to provide solution too. Ribha Kumari’s story is indicative of the same.
Ribha, a 14 yr. old mentally challenged girl is in 3rd standard. Its learnt schools are giving funds for uniform/transport which comes to student’s bank account. Because of her low intellectual ability, Ribha finds it difficult to sign and for this reason bank denied the amount to her (they disallowed taking thumb impression too).
Our #CO happened to meet the distressed mother and daughter and decided to take up the matter.She disputed the authorities, got Ribha’s mother the payment for now and stipulated this condition for future.
As reported by her mother, Ribha since last two months has discontinued going to school since other children in class teases and makes fun of her. Baby Devi has decided to go and meet the administrator and also give some social lessons to the class. Perhaps it would be right to say that Baby Devi has a flame of inspiration that can ignite in many rustic minds.
