A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM SANJAY KUMAR / THE FIRST STUDENT AMBASSADOR FOR PEOPLE FIRST

My name is Sanjay Kumar and it has been my pleasure to meet people visiting People First arriving in Delhi and helping them. I came to Delhi on a People First CAPS scholarship to study French at the Alliance Francaise. I am also studying tourism management. Now as I come to the end of my time studying and look forward to the world of work, I cannot believe how lucky I have been. My family was so poor they could not look after me and I was sent away to live with my maternal uncle in another village. How different it all was then. Let us say life was hard, I was not even going to school, and I could see no future. Everything changed when I started studying at the local People First village school. From there I was lucky enough to get a place at a residential school and after my school leaving examinations; I went on to study in Delhi. This is all due to the kindness of others, and I shall always remain thankful for all the opportunities that I have received through People First. I have enjoyed my time as Student Ambassador explaining to groups visiting our projects some of the difficulties many children face in gaining an education. I have also learnt so much about different cultures. My education has totally transformed my life. Please support People First. I certainly intend to donate 10% of my income in the future to help support others, so they too can have a chance of a decent life, just like me. Sanjay Kumar
