Sunils Story


This update comes from Sunil Kumar (not his real name which we have changed for child protection reasons).

"Namaste to everybody!!.

You may have seen my story on the Rescue Junction video on the website, for many reasons I do not want to go home and it is not possible I think for ever.

But I am very happy here at my school. My favourite subject is English. Here our teachers really care for us and I love to learn. We get good food and I do not feel that my future will be bad anymore I feel I am lucky i can get such an education because of People First and I will be OK in my life now. It has been explained to me and many other children too how people help us by giving us help and a wonderful chance to be so lucky and we are fortunate to have people care for us.

I study in class two.

With the other children I want to thank you so much for thinking of us".

Sunil is studying full time at a residential school on a People First Scholarship. His letter was translated from Hindi but is unedited

Help us support more children like Sunil and give them a bright future!
