Boys can be good friends too!

Anu Mishra is a 15 year old girl from Kolegoan. She has studied till 8th grade. She droped out from school for 2 years as her family migrated to Kolegaon from their native place. Her mother is working as domestic worker & father is working as a security guard in one building.

 “I didn't know before that, boys are good & they support us too. Now I have confidence that I can work with boys too.”

Anu was hesitant to mix up & talking with boys first. Our partner organisation Anubhuti admitted her in government school in 8'th std. When she played with boys & girl's mix group on the playground for the first time she felt very shy. After playing twice & interacting with boys she said that, she didn't know that boys are good & can be the good friends too. Now she is playing on ground confidently, and is a part of the core youth leader group.
