Gurmeet Kaur lives with her parents and siblings in Alwar, Rajasthan. Her mother got married at a very early age and had her first child when she was 19. She did not have a chance to go to school or develop any skills so now she is a housewife. Her father is an electrician and makes about 8,000 rupees a month. With the rising costs of monthly expenses and other financial burdens, Gurmeet’s parents are in desperate need of help. Luckily, educating their daughter is no longer a burden, with SAF CANADA’s free school.
Educating young girls like Gurmeet 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, Gurmeet 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.
