Lakshmi Kaur is 8 years old and currently studying in the 4th grade. She lives in Indore, MP with her family. Her father sells balloons for a living and only manages to make $ 4CAD per day. Unfortunately, during the last rainy season, their home fell apart and broke as it was made of mud, clay, and metal sheets. While their home is being repaired, they are currently living with their aunt. Lakshmi Kaur looks up to her father as a role model. She enjoys going to school and hopes to become a teacher when she grows up.
Laksmi Kaur 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 Lakshmi Kaur’s tuition fees, school supplies, textbook costs, and any medical issues for the child and his immediate family.
