Punjab We mostly deal with single mothers, farmer suicide families and other under privileged children with various familial situations.
Akashdeep Singh has been living with his mother and maternal uncle, after his mother had separated from his father some 12 years ago and his father passed away in the years following their separation. Akashdeep’s uncle is deeply committed to ensuring that his sister and nephew are not homeless. Although he is not very wealthy, he has refused to get married so that he can focus on taking care of his sister and nephew, and has built a small two bedroom home for them to live in on his property. Akashdeep’s mother makes ‘manjay’ (traditional woven beds) at home and earns roughly $20-22/month. Akashdeep loves school, and hopes to become a pilot one day.
