Arshpreet lives in Ludhiana with her family. Arshpreet's favourite colour is blue and her favorite place to visit is Bathinda(Punjab). She loves going to school and when she grows up, Ravinder wants to be a teacher. Unfortunately, Arshpreet's parents are afraid they will not be able to give their daughter the education every child deserves. Arshpreet's father works tirelessly at a factory earning 9,000 rupees each month - that's less than $200 a month.In order for the family to survive, Arshpreet's mother has taken on a job as well, working from home. She does partial sewing on women clothing and earns somewhat close to $20 a month.
Arshpreet's parents want their daughter to go to school and get a good education, but they cannot afford to pay her tuition much longer, especially if anyone else in their family falls sick and needs medical treatment. Medical expenses in India are extremely high and capable of devastating families. Medicine is a right, not a privilege. When you sponsor a child through SAF CANADA, along with covering the child’s tuition fees we make sure every member of a child’s immediate family receives the medical treatment they need. If you sponsor Arshpreet today, we will be able to make sure that nothing robs this young girl of the opportunity to learn and the chance for her family to live a happy, healthy life.
