After the video of an 11-year-old girl in Jamshedpur selling mangoes to buy a phone, in order to attend online classes went viral, she is now awarded Rs 1.2 lakh.

Tulsi Kumar, an 11-year-old girl was not able to continue her education online due to financial constraints, following which she resorted to selling mangoes.

Tulsi said that she was not able to bear the pain of not being able to attend online classes and therefore decided to sell mangoes so she could buy a smartphone and continue her studies.

The viral video managed to attract the attention of a Mumbai-based Valuable Edutainment Private Limited that then decided to buy a dozen mangoes for Rs 1.2 lakh.

Tulsi said that a few days after the video was shared, someone called up from Mumbai and offered to pay Rs 10,000 each for 12 mangoes.

The money was transferred to her father’s account and a tutor was hired for Tulsi.

Tulsi’s mother Padmini Devi said, “Tulsi is good at studies and we are hopeful she will do something good in her life,”

Valuable Edutainment Private Limited, which lent a helping hand, expects more students to seek inspiration for Tulsi’s story.

A letter received by Tulsi from the Managing Director of Valuable Edutainment Private Limited, Ameya Hete, read, “We hope that this helps you not only through these tough times, but help your future education needs as well,” further adding, “When there is a will, there is a way.”
