Hi, my name is

June 05, 2008     Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh

Community Development Project: Pachori (Madhya Pradesh)

Harmeet Singh is from a Sikligar community in Madhya Pradesh that has a very high dropout rate among the children. Most of the children attend a government school that does not charge any fees, but also provides a very low quality education. There is no accountability for teachers or students, and absenteeism is prevalent. As a result, by the time the children reach high school and are made to write exams, they usually fail and dropout of school for good. The boys find whatever work they can and the girls are usually married off at 14 to 16 years old. SAF CANADA will be taking on the responsibility of educating Harmeet and other children from this area. They will begin attending a private school with a much higher quality education.

If you sponsor Harmeet today, you will be supporting SAF CANADA’s efforts to address some of the root causes of poor education and poverty in India. Sponsor Harmeet today and ensure that his future and the future of his entire community is much brighter than their present circumstances.
