Hi, my name is

February 18, 2004     Paonta Sahib, Himachal Pradesh

This 5 member family lives in a single room that is given to them by the Gurdwara sahib. Gurpreet, 13 years old, hopes to get a government job when he grows up so at least the he will have a fixed income. Gurpreet's father works as a 'Barcha Sevadaar'(Guard) at the gurdwara sahib with a salary of $88/month. Gurpreet's mother also works, she cooks food at the gurdwara sahib with a salary of $80/month. Unfortunately, these wages are the median salary for the positions in India, with a little help from us, hopefully their children will be able to get access to better education.

Grade: 8

Make a difference in my life for just $35.00 a month!
