Ishan lives in Alwar, Rajasthan with his family and attends SAF CANADA’s free school for children living in extreme poverty. Unfortunately, his living conditions are very difficult and limit his ability to have a proper childhood. He lives with his parents and six siblings in deplorable conditions without adequate access to electricity, heat, or water. His dad works as a labourer andis having a difficult time providing for his family. Labourers often perform back-breaking work for very little wages. Working as a labourer is also unsteady and insecure as many workers are hired on a day-to-day basis, like Ishan’s father. He makes about 5,000 rupees each month – that’s only $100 CAD, which is not enough to support a family of nine. Luckily, Ishan’s education is no longer a financial burden thanks to SAF CANADA’s free school.
Educating young children like Ishan is a key step to ending poverty worldwide. Thanks to SAF CANADA, Ishan will have a chance to go to school and have access to a quality education without his parent’s having to worry about tuition fees, textbook costs, and other expenses.
