Charanpreet Singh lives in Jammu with his family. He likes to play cricket with his friends and wants to be a pilot when he grows up, which means he needs to work hard in school. Unfortunately, Charanpreet’s opportunities in life are extremely limited and he is not sure if he will be able to complete his education and achieve his dreams. Charanpreet’s father works in a shop that sells dried fruit and makes about 10,000 rupees each month – that’s only $200 CAD. Charanpreet’s family lives in a house with his four uncles. Charanpreet, his brother, and his parents all live in a single room. They also have a small kitchen and a tiny room for storage to themselves. They share the washroom with the four other families that live in the house. Charanpreet’s parents want a better future for their children, but they worry that they will not be able to afford all of their educational expenses.
