Gayatri Has Hope for a Bright Future

Gayatri Shinde is a 9th-grader who lives with her parents in a rented room in the Asalpha village in Mumbai. She is a sincere and hardworking young girl who loves to dance and excels academically. Two years ago, her father, the sole earner of the family, lost his job, and the family has struggled financially since. Gayatri’s family struggles to pay their high rent and costly utility bills, together totaling roughly Rs. 6,500 per month for one small room. With his temporary job, Gayatri’s father was unable to pay her school fees, putting her at risk of dropping out. With help from SPRJ Kanyashala Trust, Gayatri received a Share & Care scholarship to cover the cost of her education, and her family will be free of any financial burden associated with it. Now she will be able to finish her schooling successfully, with hopes of one day becoming an Indian Police Service Officer.

“I am extremely grateful to Share & Care for granting my daughter a scholarship. In a dark phase of my life, your foundation’s help was like a ray of hope.”
