Gurkirat Kaur lives in the Amritsar with her family. Her father works tirelessly as a Laborer earning only 6000 rupees a month ($120). Unfortunately, Labourers in India have to wait for work, many sit months awaiting employment opportunities and for her father life is no different. It's becoming increasingly difficult for him to provide for his family. Every month he does not work his expenses pile up. This unfortunate situation puts Gurkirat Kaur's education and therefore, her future at risk. In desperation to save money, it is extremely common for families in India to deregister their daughters from school. It is this process, where education is sacrificed in order to make ends meet, that perpetuates the cycle of poverty in India.
We can stop this cycle. With your support, SAF Canada can ensure Gurkirat stays in school. Your contributions will cover her tuition fees, school supplies, textbook costs, and medical expenses for her or any member of her immediate family. Ridding the world of poverty is no small task; however, with the generosity of people like you, we can make it a possibility. Sponsor Gurkirat today and join SAF Canada in the fight against poverty.
