Support street children
Bajrang is a rag picker like his 2 older brothers. The three of them and their younger brother all stayed in the Saat Rasta area of Mumbai. Their mother came to Mumbai from her village a few months ago. Bajrang, despite being a rag picker, pursued his education on his own. He enrolled himself in the Marwadi Vidyalaya Hindi Medium school and passed class IX with a distinguished 75% last year. He financed his own education.
Bajrang clearly understood that now, being in his final school year, he would need to focus a lot more on his studies with no distractions and difficulties in having to earn his own livelihood. He approached YMCA Mumbai Central looking for a safe place to stay and where he need not work but could concentrate on his studies. YMCA approached us for his admission to our Night shelter. We gladly brought him in to our Andheri Night Shelter.
Bajrang has adjusted very well to life at our Andheri shelter. He is a hardworking and disciplined boy, obedient and helpful. He sincerely does all the chores and tasks assigned to him. He also helps the younger boys with their studies. He has been enrolled in special coaching classes to help him score even better in his SSC. He is so focused on his studies that he turns down opportunities to go on fun excursions/ outings and prefers to stay back and study. His ambition is to become a civil engineer or architect! And we at Salaam Baalak will help him realize his dreams.
