Verneet Kaur is 5 years old, turning 6 later this year. She lives in Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab with her sister, parents and grandparents. Her father has become somewhat disabled after a recent accident due to electric shock. The accident has left him severely injured and weak, which means he cannot continue work anymore. Verneet’s mother tries to make ends meet for the family by sewing clothing for $30 CAD per month. Their home has 1 bedroom, and they have set up a bed in their kitchen for Verneet’s grandparents.
Verneet’s parents were ready to transfer their children into a government school so that they wouldn’t have the burden of not being able to pay for their daughters’ school fees on their shoulders. Fortunately, SAF learned of this family and offered to help continue their children’s education through sponsorship. Thankfully, Verneet’s parents agreed! Sponsor Verneet today and help SAF help Verneet and her family.
