This year Roshan Life’s scholarship program provides seventeen students from poor families with school fees, uniforms and books. These students are often the first in their entire clan to attend school. Recently our scholarship program arranged a small gathering with the scholarship students. Here’s what some of the students of the students shared:
“I like my school. My teacher loves me and helps me in my work. I have lots of fun in my class. In future I want to be teacher just like my own teacher.’’
Reeta — I am 24 years old, having 2 brothers and two sisters. I was the first girl who got scholarship in 2002. We were seven members in family living in a rented house. My father was working hard to fulfil our basic needs (clothing, shelter, food). It was difficult for my father to send us (me and my four siblings) to school. With the help of Roshan Life, my two siblings and I got admission in school. Thanks to Roshan Life, I was able to complete high school. Now I am working in Roshan Life as a Montessori teacher and scholarship coordinator. This is certainly an in-service training. I’m learning new things each day. Working here nourishes my capabilities and makes me able to think in a broad way. Thank you Roshan Life!
My name is Marry. I am 16 years old. I belong to a poor family. My parents are illiterate. I am first girl in the family who has reached to grade 9 because I got scholarship from Roshan Life which is a great help for my family. Without scholarship I don’t think I could go school. This scholarship is empowering my life holistically. I became His child on 13 June 2013. Now I am part of the mission youth group of my church.
Last year I went to south the country on a mission trip to reach the unreached tribes. There I saw many sick children which broke my heart. I asked one lady, “Why did you not take your child to doctor?” She told us that there was not a single doctor in their whole village. On that day I said I should be a doctor in future to help those people who are poorest of the poor.
Please do remember me in your prayers so that God may use me for His glory through words and deeds.
