More than an inspiration;from a beggar to a 'Cambridge University Scholar'

                                          " Dreams don't see money, Passion don't see poverty "
Jayavel, a guy living in the slums with his family which includes his mother, 3 elder sisters and 1 younger brother never lose hope after certain hardships.

He was not born in a poor family. He was the son of a farmer. Due to crop failure the family came on roads. Since his father died early, his mother was forced to send the children on the roads of Kilpauk,chennai for begging.

He had no other option then to beg to fill his and his family's stomach. Hopefully an NGO won the trust of the people of slum.  Jayavel was among the three children from his slum to attend the Siragu Montessori School run by Suyam in Avadi, chennai.

In 2010,  Jayavel appeared for his class 10th IGCSE exam through Cambridge University,UK.  His fees was sponsored by Uma ma'am.  He cleared his class 12th exam from Velammal Matriculan School, Surapet.

In 2013, he applied for Glyndwr University, Wrexham, Uk and got selected on merit.  Again he was sponsored by Suyam.  For the third year in engineering he is among the top 10 students who have offered a fully funded scholarship for studied in Italy. Though he is studying in Italy he still needs more funds. He'll further apply for civil services to drive out poverty from India.

Such a story is an inspiration to everyone!
