Gurpreet Kaur lives with her family in the Gurdaspur District. She enjoys reading and writing in school and in her free time often comes up with jokes. Gurpreet's ability to stay light hearted during difficult times is a beautiful thing. Just a few years ago, her father passed and since then they have been living extremely impoverished lives. The financial responsibility of supporting the family fell on her mother who farms small 5/8th-acre farm. Fortunately, Gurpreets mother’s brother offered them money to buy food and pay for shelter. If not for this, Gurpreet would no doubt be on the streets by now.
During difficult times, families like Gurpreet’s often deregister their children from school to save money. The future looks bleak for their family and if they don't get sustainable support soon, Gurpreet will face a similar fate. You can help by sponsoring her education. Should you do so, your monthly contribution will cover her tuition fees, school supplies, textbook costs, and medical expenses for her or any member of her immediate family. This small amount of money can make a night and day difference in lives of Gurpreet’s Family. Educating young children is an important step in ending poverty around the world. Sponsor Gurpeet today and join SAF CANADA in the fight against poverty.
