Thank you for your continuing support.
For all of India’s emergence as an economic power the State of Bihar has double the number of people living in extreme poverty than in the whole of Ethiopia. ( Source Department of International development UK)
Your support is very much needed to change these young peoples lives. Here is a letter for you all,
My name is Santosh and I want to say hello and thank you to you all.
I am a CAPS student and I am living in Delhi studying Spanish. I also get to meet and greet official visitors to People First in Delhi and brush up on my English! I cannot tell you enough how much I realise how very lucky I am to get this chance due to a People First Scholarship.
My family is very poor and were unable to provide with me with a good education and there was only the People First School which offered hope to children like me.
But I want to make my parents proud. Education is not an option for me. It is everything. My life. I will be able to help my whole family in the future.
Without it I cannot have any future and my family who work as hard as they can, will still remain in poverty. Here in Bihar India the minimum wage is just $2.00 or £1.50 a day.
Please help students like me achieve everything beyond our wildest dreams. A decent life ,and an escape from poverty for ever.
