Bharatiya Samaj Seva Kendra (BSSK) is a social organization with a branch in Aurangabad (Maharashtra), which works towards providing education to the children at underprivileged homes. My family has been sponsoring school education of multiple students since a decade, and they added one under my name a few years back.
Education in India
Education needs to be transformed at a massive scale in India, from better teachers to educating the parents on what their child needs to learn and from what perspective – it would take a billion people taking first steps to reach the desired goal. The least families like ours can do is to support genuine organizations such as these which ensure a child goes to school.
About Shaliesh Gaikwad
This ten year old child (whose education I sponsor) was born on 5th November 2005 and is currently 10 years old. He continues to stay with his parents and siblings in a certain area of the city, there has been little change in their economic condition. His father works as a casual worker on a construction site and earns Rs.6000 approx every month. His income is irregular since it depends on the availability of work. Shailesh’s mother works as a maid at homes, and earns Rs.1000 approx every month. Since they have to pay Rs.1200 every month for house rent (including electricity and water charges), they find it very difficult to manage the basic needs, medical and educational expenses.
Thank You, BSSK
I’m grateful that my family has been humbly supporting BSSK’s efforts, and I’m glad I can help in whatever little way I can. There are numerous such organizations around us, and helping our fellow citizens in need is the need for the hour. Thank you, BSSK, for your monthly updates on the children we support.
