Freedom Through Education
WRITTEN BY Dignity Freedom Network ON Mon Oct 12,2020
Samar was kicked out of his local school at age eight because he was unable to pay the expensive fees. For many families in rural India, sending a child to school is out of reach. That’s why it’s not uncommon for relatives to discourage children from pursuing an education because of limited finances. Samar, unfortunately, was one of those children.
Losing access to education ended Samar’s childhood early and abruptly.
After leaving school, Samar was expected to help his family earn a living, help with chores, and take care of his younger siblings. Fortunately, when Samar and his family heard about our school, they were shocked to learn that he could attend for little or no cost at all. Now, Samar and his two siblings all attend our school, where they can learn, and play.
Now that Samar is receiving a high-quality education in English, the entire trajectory of his family’s life has changed.
Samar was destined for the same cycle of poverty that claimed his father’s life—but not anymore! Now, Samar has been given the opportunity to have hopes, dreams, and plans for his future.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, Samar is charting a new future.
