Akash Nagar:- SAF took on the responsibility of this project in November 2018 by placing 55 children back into school. This is another Sikligar Sikh community & SAF has committed to a 5 year commitment for this community.
Aarti lives with her family in Madhya Pradesh. She is 8 years old and currently in second grade. Her father works hard trying to provide for his family by selling keys and locks on foot. On a good day, he manages to make $4 CAD per day. As you can imagine, this is nowhere enough pay to support a family, especially when there are four children in that family. This family is having to live in their home with no electricity, and their home is made of metal sheets.
Aarti comes from a family of Sikligar Sikhs. The Sikligars are a neglected community, who as a whole have a poor standard of living through no fault of their own. If the future of a community is at stake, then it is very important to connect the new generation with the education of the present. It is for these reasons that this special project for Sikligar Sikhs has been developed by the SAF International. Your monthly contribution will cover Aarti’s tuition fees, school supplies, textbook costs, and any medical issues for the child and her immediate family.
