Sunny And Gopi Want To Head Back To School And Need Your Support

You will find Sunny 11yrs and Gopi 9 yrs loitering around in the upscale phase 3 of Gurgaon Cyber City with a shoe brush pleading office passerby to get their shoe polished, so that they can have money for food. Their rucksacks are staked with shoe polish, brush and other accessories instead of books.

Sunny & Gopi both came to the city of Delhi with their parents from a remote village in Kanpur, UP.  They have been to various place in the city before being scared away by the law enforcers for being encroach-ers of their city roads and pavements. Both of them stay now under the Rajiv Chowk flyover on National Highway 34.

Sunny's mother used to work as a construction labour before being out of job due to her ill health, his father is a daily wage labour. Gopi's father keeps ill.  Both being eldest male child had to work to support their family. Sunny has 3 brothers and one elder sister, while Gopi has three elder sisters.

Sunny is keen to return to his village to his grandmother and study. " I am trying to collect some money for marriage of my elder sister this summer, after that I want to go back to my village and not return here, until I finish my school and help my father to build his house", says Sunny with a husky and serious tone. Gopi also is trying to manage some money for this family before leaving for his village to join school. " I too want to study back in village and stay there with my aunt", says Gopi.

Both Sunny and Gopi are more matured than kids of their age. " I know if I study I will get a good job, then I will come back to Delhi", says Sunny.

Your support is required to help these kids to head back to school and pursue their dreams. Sunny wants to collect around Rs. 2000 in cash and some more money to buy clothes for his sister's marriage in next one week before heading out for his village. Gopi wants to join him back and requires money for his travel, food and buy books. A small amount of Rs. 10,000/- can help them meet their needs, fulfill their responsibility and help them to get back to school.

Dear Supporters,
Thank you so much for coming forward to help them.
I met Sunny and Gopi day before and had long chat with both. Both seems to have grown comfortable with my friendship and shared a lot about their family and daily lives. It was sad to hear about one of their father being an alcoholic and persistent abuser.
Sunny and Gopi introduced me to 6 of his other friends who lives in the same community and polish shoes in and around the cyber city. It was wonderful to interact with these children who sounded so mature and responsible. They promised me to take to their home and I am looking forward to it in next week.
I had got few T-shirts for these children and was happy to see them enjoy wearing new clothes. I know this is not enough they need a supportive ecosystem to jump back in life, nothing can replace school for these children and I hope I am able to facilitate that for them with the support of you all.
There are more Sunny and Gopi awaiting help there!
