Meet Prakash Rao, who according to his proffesion, a tea seller but frank to say this man is far far beyond that. He is a small time tea seller who uses his earnings to help slum children in cuttak. He uses all his money for the education of that kids. Yes some stories and some people are extremely underrated D prakash Rao is one among them.
Prakash Rao who has only preliminary education of Tenth standard is now running a primary school called ‘ Asha O Aswasana’ for kids from ecnomicaly backward family. Most of the students are from slum areas near the school. And the money to operate the school is made from Prakash Rao’s Tea stall and other side bussiness.
Rao who was a 11th standard droop out who stopped his studies due to financial problems of this family, belives in the importance of education and doesn’t want another child to break own studies due to financial constraints. His efforts paved path for the school which currently has around 75 students and they are provided with after noon meals. The school is properly maintained like any other high class international schools.
Rao started the school with one room and later his friends and well wishers helped him to expand the school. Now it has a play school area too. And the great thing behind his motive is that he doesn’t accepts a single penny from the parents of the kids. He hard works for them and with his hard work the kids reap the fruit of education.
The school has class from 1 to 3 rd standard and after that students who are brighter prospects are taken care of by Rao himself and are sent higher schools where Prakash Rao stays as the sponsor for them. By far 8 girls from his school are currently studying in college
Prakash Rao’s words “i cant do big things and i don’t have any money to do charity. All i have is a tea shop and earnings from my shop is used to educate and provide nutrition to slum children….”
This man isn’t a highly accomplished business man or someone with silver spoon. He is just a common man with a great vision. Only god can satisfy hungry heart of a man. Yes this Man, we can call him God.. Take a bow !!!
