Education is not the answer to the question. Education is the means to answers all questions - dedicated to all nomadic children by team VSSM

Rekha Bachubhai Chauhan sponsored
by Smt. Aplaben and Shri Atulbhai
Rekha is a child with ambition and determination. Her story sets a best example of achieving esteem through dedication & focus. Her mother Bhikiben has struggled to earn livelihood, after her husband’s sudden demise, this family was left out in tragic situation.

Bhikiben faced this misfortune with sheer courage, along with her five children she started working in farms on daily wages, she raised them with dignity &  respect, but yet she never wanted her children to live this disastrous life, she wanted her daughters to be educated.

VSSM’s presence in her region & our zeal to make the lives of these nomadic communities desirous was known to major community people, Bhikiben was aware, she enquired about our Girls hostel, being a mother a parting her daughter to faraway place was difficult decision, but Bhikiben was sure that VSSM will make her daughter a civilised and educated human being, her expectations & desires was “I want my daughter to study well and be role models in our community. They should inspire other children from our community to receive education and help eradicate practices like child-marriages from our community, only then will my community really shine,”  

VSSM also helped Bhikiben & and younger son to start a new vocation under our Interest Free Loan – Livelihood Programme. Today Bhikiben owns a small farm & cultivates vegetables & her son runs a small shop in village wherein he sells some confectionery & daily use household items. Gradually this family is out of ruin of misfortunes.

Rekha is fortunate to have found a sponsor. Smt. Alpaben and Shri. Atulbhai Ambavat, friend, well-wishers, supporters & our guardian, has taken the entire responsibility of Rekha’s education until she wants to study.

However, this is not the case with many children who still wait for a sponsor.
They need your support to lead a dignified life and realize their dream. Your gift of Child Sponsorship will mean a new lease of life for such children. Thank you.
