Sarbjeet Kaur is 12 years old and lives with her mother in Ropar, Punjab. Her father is an abusive alcoholic who bothers his wife from time to time, even though she has divorced him. Sarbjeet’s mother has it hard, as most single parents in India do. Sarbjeet’s mother not only has polio, but there is no support for her and she is currently trying to find a room for rent that she and Sarbjeet Kaur can live in. She works at a school and makes midday meals there, and she brings some of that food home to feed herself and Sarbjeet. Sarbjeet’s uncles help out where they can, but with families of their own, it is sometimes difficult. Sarbjeet really enjoys going to school and hopes to become a teacher someday. If you choose to sponsor Sarbjeet today, you will ensure that she can achieve her goals, and you will also lift a huge financial burden off of her mother’s shoulders.
