Arshdeep Singh is 7 years old and lives in Amritsar, Punjab. His favourite colour is orange and he loves to eat apples and play. Arshdeep dreams of becoming a teacher someday. His family consists of 7 members, and they depend on his father to provide for them. His father is a truck driver and only brings in an income of 7000 rupees per month ($140/mo). Unfortunately, sometimes he does not receive his wages for up to 4-5 months at a time. They live in a house that has 3 bedrooms, but it has been split between 3 families. Each family has one room, the bathroom is shared amongst the families and there is no kitchen.
Your sponsorship is an important and continuing part of the assistance given to help this impressionable young boy and his family attain self-reliance, for this is the development in which SAF Canada is involved. Nelson Mandela famously said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. And who has the power to change the world? It's the children of today, who are the adults of tomorrow.
