Jayesh lives in a village in Port Victor, very close to GHCL’s SMCD division. There are five members in the family which includes two school going siblings. His father is a casual driver and mother is a seasonal farm labourer. Jayesh had completed his SSC some years back and wanted to continue studying further. But because he was the eldest son he was forced to give up his dreams and start earning for the family. There were many days, when all he could think of was that he did not even have the right to dream.
But, when Jayesh was in school, he had dreamt of joining the Indian army. So when GHCL Foundation conducted a scholarship program in his school in association with buddy4study, Jayesh applied for the scholarship. His interest & aptitude were identified under the DISHA Career Counselling program and he qualified for a scholarship.
