Kare Aparna belongs to the fishermen community of Vada Narsapuram village. Having lost her father when she was very young, she faced many problems and even had to drop out from the Primary school she attended.

BCT had started innovative schools in remote villages just then, enabling Aparna to rejoin school and study up till 7th class. She then enrolled into the BCT Residential High School and continued her education.

A bright student, Aparna also learned tailoring, embroidery, singing and writing songs and drama presentation. She successfully completed 10th class and got married. However, her woes did not end, as she faced harassment from her husband.

BCT reached out and motivated her yet again to join the BCT vocational junior college for a course in fashion designing.inToday Kare Aparna works as a tailoring teacher in ZP High school, Yellamanchili and earns Rs 16000/ pm.

Her husband is a changed man and she has two daughters. She even wrote a Burrakadha on the importance of libraries, that won her first place in the district. While her troubles may not completely be over, she is an example of how education can transform a life.

She stands as an inspiration for many.
