Helping Muskan Plant the Seeds of Generational Change

Muskan’s parents are her biggest inspiration. They reside in Pune, where her father is an electrician and her mother is a homemaker. Throughout her childhood, Muskan watched as her family struggled to make ends meet due to her father’s unstable income. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, their financial situation tightened even more. Muskan saw the emotional stigma attached to her parents’ lack of education and the stereotypes associated with her community. Despite this, with unwavering support from her family, she applied to Share & Care’s Educate 2 Graduate scholarship program through the Lila Poonawalla Foundation (LPF). Muskan is now working toward her bachelor’s degree from the Allana College of Pharmacy, and she is doing extremely well in her studies.

“I am grateful to LPF and Share & Care for giving me timely support, helping me with my college fees and bringing me one step closer to my dream and pursuing a career of my choice. Once I start earning, I would love to support girls like me to pursue their dreams and a career of their choice”
