Harshdeep Singh lives with his family in a small village in the Ludhiana district of Punjab. His father works as a labourer with a mistri (mason) and manages to earn about 7, 000 rupees each month. Labourers often perform back–breaking work for very little wages and his father is having a difficult time providing for his family.
With the rising costs of monthly expenses and other financial burdens, Harshdeep’s parents are afraid they will no longer be able to afford his tuition fees. Often times, young children must sacrifice their education due to the financial burden on their families and begin working from a young age, but educating young boys like Harshdeep is the key to ending poverty and uplifting poor communities across India. If you sponsor him today, we will be able to make sure that nothing robs this young child of the opportunity to learn and you will be able to give him the hope of a better future.
