Ananya is 5 years old and goes to nursery school. She lives in Alwar, Rajasthan with her parents and siblings. Her dad is a labourer and is having a difficult time providing for his family. Labourers often perform back–breaking work for very little wages. Working as a labourer is also unsteady or insecure, and many workers are hired on a day-to-day basis, like Ananya’s father. Her mother is a housewife, with no source of income. They live in a rented room, without proper access to water or electricity. Luckily, educating their children is no longer a burden, with SAF CANADA’s free school.
Educating young girls like Ananya protects them from early child marriages and allows them to live their lives without being dependent on others. Lifting women and children out of poverty is a key step to ending poverty worldwide as they are the ones who constitute a majority of the world’s poor. Thanks to SAF CANADA, Ananya will have a chance to go to school and access to a quality education without her parent’s having to worry about tuition fees, textbook costs, and other expenses. If you sponsor Ananya today, you can ensure SAF CANADA is able to continue supporting the education of children in need and see how the free school is impacting her life.
