Varun is almost 10 years old and lives with his mother and maternal grandparents in Ludhiana, Punjab. He dreams of becoming a professional cricket player when he grows up. His mother is a single mother as his father passed away in 2016 from a train accident. Varun’s mother moved back in with her parents and relies on their support. Varun’s maternal grandfather works hard to support the family by working in an iron factory. He manages to earn $125 CAD per month and on occasion an extra $20 CAD per month if he can get overtime hours.
Every child deserves to go to school. Varun should not have to worry about not being able to go to school so that his grandfather and mother can afford to keep food on the table. Like any other child, he deserves the opportunity to reach his dreams, and you can help make that happen.
