Help continue the education of 22,000 children!
Sangita and her mother were abandoned by her father soon after she was born. Toiling hard as a rickshaw driver in the streets of Kolkata, Sangita’s father felt he could not shoulder any additional responsibilities. Ever since that day, Sangita’s mother has not smiled even once. But she has not let this come in the way of her daughter’s future. The determined lady started working as a domestic help, washing and cleaning everyday at 8-10 houses, to ensure that her daughter does not have to go without food. She works on holidays and Sundays, without taking even a single day off to save a little money for her daughter’s education.
At present, Sangita is studying in Class 2 at the Mission Education centre in Kolkata. She is growing up to be a happy and confident child, who is even at such a young age aware of her responsibilities towards her mother. She insists that her mother take proper rest when she returns after a long day at work, and never eats dinner without her. Sometimes, she takes her friends from the centre home to cheer up her mother. Sangita’s only aim in life, she shares is to make her maa smile once again! But this is only possible if she can continue her education.
Help 22,000 children like Sangita continue their education and fulfill their dreams. Smile Foundation’s ‘Every Child in School’ campaign is committed to ensure a brighter and better future for these young, deserving children. Will you join us in making this possible?
