Karmila Toppo, a devoted primary school teacher hailing from Vadrafnagar, has been setting an inspiring example of unwavering commitment to her students’ education. Every day, Toppo undertakes a challenging journey, crossing not one but two rivers to reach the school situated in Dhourpur village, Balrampur district.
Karmila Toppo’s Determination Amidst Adversity
In an exclusive interview with ANI, Karmila Toppo revealed that there is no alternative route available to reach the school, leaving her with no choice but to cross the rivers daily.

“There are two rivers on my way which I have to cross in order to reach the school. There is no other way. I come every day to build the future of the children,” she said with conviction.
Challenges and Sacrifices for the Sake of Education
Karmila resides in Vadrafnagar with her husband, who is also a teacher posted in another development block of the district, and their two children.
