Mounesh.K son of Rangappa from Garbagudi village of Harapanahalli taluk of Davangere district, dropped out of school when he was studying in the 6th standard. When he was six years old his father died. He has four brothers. Since his mother was unable to sustain the family Mounesh started working in a farm of the neighbor.

In 1998 when Don Bosco Child Labour Mission started the Residential Bridge Course for child labourers, our social worker Heerya Naik identified the boy in the work place and spoke with the child and the mother. The boy showed great interest in learning. So he was brought to Don Bosco and  was admitted to the Residential Bridge Course for his education. After one year he was readmitted to the Government school at Harapanahalli to the 7th standard. He was also admitted to the Government hostel for scheduled caste students in Harapanahalli. He studied there till he passed SSLC. He passed SSLC in IInd class.

After his SSLC Don Bosco Child Labour Mission helped him to join for PUC. He was admitted to a private college in Harapanahalli for PUC. He passed PUC with 82% marks. It was a remarkable achievement.

After PUC he got admission for Diploma in Education (D.ed) in Government quota where he has to pay less fees. He got 80% marks for his D.ed examination. After this he prepared for various competitive examinations and in December 2010 he was selected for the post of police constable in Davangere District.

On being asked what will be his motto in life as a police constable Mounesh said he would work for seeking justice for the poor.  He is a model for all the students of Don Bosco Child Labour Mission and makes DBCLM proud.
