This Diwali season vanquish the evil of child labour and give Hasan and many other children like him the gift of education.
Hasan, is without doubt a rising star. He lives with his parents and younger sister in one of the sprawling urban slums of Gurugram. He is an alert and attentive boy and his curious and eager temperament make the class more interesting. He and his family migrated from the outskirts of Bengal to the Saraswati Kunj slums of Gurugram, three years ago. WhenGuideStar India Platinum Seal certified NGO Sukarya team first saw him, he was sifting materials from a heap of garbage. When they asked him if he wanted to study in their school, his answer surprised them. He quizzed, “Ma'am will you charge?” When we said no, it was a free service, he replied promptly, “In that case, I will study in your school and I will return the favour by teaching you Bengali”. Indeed, he did end up teaching several of the team members basic Bengali. Hasan, full of and dreams and zest is not only studying to improve his life but playing the role of an agent of social change and motivating others to study.
Education is a dream for millions of children who struggle to survive daily and our surrounded by darkness. #EveryTuesday you have the opportunity to light a diya in their lives by giving them the gift of education. Say #MaineDiya and share your picture with a diya after making a contribution and illuminating the lives of children.
