Challenge

Arun lost his father at a young age. His mother is a domestic help and has two more children, Ali and Nagur, to take care of. Jehangir was supported by Sphoorti for 10 years. Jehangir is a very hard working child. His College Fee + Living Expenses are around Rs 75,000 p.a. which is beyond the means of her mother.

This project solves the problem by providing Jehangir comprehensive care, food, clothing, shoes, school bags, travel costs, health care and required material to study well. He is also preparing for Engineering Entrance examinations. The total cost is Rs 55,000 (tuition for two years) + Rs 75,000 (living expenses for two years) + Rs 30,000 (travel expenses for two years).
