Naseema Bano & Rabia Bano are now a confident young women, daring to stand on their own with good school education a computer course. Both belong to Poore Ramjani, a village inhabited by weavers from Muslim community and situated near Salon town of Raebareli district. Rabia Bano is a Instructor in a Computer Training Institute.

Their families are large with 6 to 9 siblings. Little family income from weaving threads was limited to the extent that it was difficult for their parents to provide education to their daughters beyond elementary level. During 2008, when Naseema were studying in the 9th grade in 2008, at that time Lokmitra, started providing Coaching and Scholarship support to Muslim and Dalit Girls in collaboration with Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (Vidya Gyan Scholarship). Naseema was successful in the selection process. During the 9th & 10th she got coaching support and scholarship of Rs 500 per month. As a part of this support, they also got to learn computer (Advanced Diploma Computer Application). She continued her study after secondary level. After doing Higher Secondary in Science and Mathematics in 2011, she has joined a local collage, doing graduation. Rabina couldn’t compete in the test. Still she requested for being allowed to attend the coaching and she was allowed. She too attended computer course apart from coaching in school subjects.
