Neetu is the eldest daughter in her family in Kasaibada (Balda) in Sadar, Lucknow. Her parents are sweepers and go out to work every day. Though only 11 years old, she has to do all the housework. When she started going to the Gyanshala, she could devote little time to it. On her first day at the center, Zarina took her learning test, and got to know that she couldn't read or write anything. Then she told Neetu: "If you come to this center every day, soon you'll be able to read and write." She wanted to read and write. So she started completing her housework early so that she could save 2 hours of her day to visit the center. Gradually, she was able to read and write. Later, convinced LMST helped her in taking admission to school. Today Neetu goes to school and studies in standard 4th.
