We would like to thank all those who helped to fund this micro-project which was given a 3 month deadline. In that time, we were able to raise $590, enough to be able to sponsor 2 children to go to a good school in Jodhpur for one year. Their names are Kartik and Nasir and their mothers are already known to Sambhali Trust in Jodhpur.
Kartik also has 2 elder sisters who are sponsored through Sambhali Trust, so we are very happy that we can sponsor him also. His mother works as a maid and lives on her own with her three children. Kartik’s father committed suicide and his mother was kicked out of her own house by her in-laws, so that they could regain the property. She came to Jodhpur with her 3 children from where she was living in the state of Gujarat to be able to start a new life. She has little help from her parents. Kartik is 12 years old and is in the 6th standard at Holy Spriti School in Jodhpur.
Nasir is 13 years old, but only in 2nd Standard class as he has had little education. Nasir’s father also committed suicide and his mother attends Sambhali’s Brothers for Sisters Sewing Centre. They live with Nasir’s paternal grandparents. Nasir has an older brother and sister. Nasir is now attending Sunmoon Public School in Jodhpur.
We thank you again for helping 2 more children in Jodhpur to receive a good education, as part of Sambhali Trust's Scholarship Programe, where we have 168 students being sponsored in total, most of them either students or children and relatives of the women that attend Sambhali Trust's Empowerment Centres.
