The COVID-19 pandemic has brought lot of miseries in the lives of millions of people in particular the less privileged segments of the society by bringing a huge wave of unemployment, down type of trends in the business as well as the earnings of daily wage laborer and factory employees. The inflation rate has also been increased which is causing a lot troubles and resulting drop out of girls from the schools.
I am Shama, an eleven-year-old student and student of class six, being an orphan girl living in remote and rural Village Shah Muhammad Ranjho, Mirpurkhas. You all know well that the COVID-19 caused unemployment, less earnings and increased rates of each and every commodity. This situation is adversely affecting the health, education and nutrition of less privileged families. I am also one of them being an orphan, as my elder brother have been free from the leather company. My elder brother dropped me in the school because I don’t have a mother or father anymore. I have one brother and one sister and both are elder than me, elder brother used to work in the leather factory and was paying my educational expenses. And its true as well that my elder brother always wished that I could join school and get education. My elder brother is a very caring person and he thinks about our future as well.
My brother was very under stress and worried about my school expenses and asked me that he is very tense that he may not pay her to continue the education for class sixth as there is no income.
Indeed, I was too much worried and same shared with Ms Uneeb. No doubt, the sharing was very blessing for me as Ms Uneed told me about ARTS Foundation that this NGO is supporting such girls to continue their education through providing admission fee, school bag and needed stationery. When I heard this then I made a request to Ms Uneeb to proceed my case with ARTS Foundation.
Thanks to ARTS Foundation, GlobalGiving and Philanthropists that your generous support and philanthropy is making my education possible even in the times of COVID-19 pandemic as I am in school for class six.
