    Sakar Bai Kale

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra

A mother's strength is supreme when it comes to protecting her children. Sometimes, Fate strikes down a little too hard on us. This is an appeal to help Sakar Bai brave her circumstances and provide her daughters with quality education.

Sakar Bai Kale was leading a normal life with her husband and 3 children near the Shanti Nagar slum until her husband, a daily wage worker, met with an accident on his work site. A brick landed on his head and caused massive bleeding and haemorrhage, leaving him incapacitated. He has faced multiple medical issues including sudden loss of consciousness, physical weakness, dizziness, and disorientation ever since, eventually leaving him unemployable.

The burden of running the family now completely rests on Sakar Bai's shoulders. Her only dream is to educate her children so that they can lead a better life. To make ends meet, she labors all day, selling toys, balloons, stickers, etc. on the streets of Mumbai. She never lets her children beg. Despite all the hard work, Poverty remains as unforgiving. Feeding her whole family two meals a day is an insurmountable challenge. Their next meal is a matter of chance. Their education is in jeopardy.

Parvati, the elder one, wants to be a Police officer while the younger one, Jyoti, aspires to be a doctor. Sakar Bai is a braveheart and is willing to go to great lengths to fulfill her daughters' dreams. They always maintain a welcoming smile on their faces, despite their hardships.

A small contribution from you goes a long way in bringing a huge change in their lives. Their world will be a better place with you in it!

Our humble request is that you please share this mother's appeal on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms with your friends and family. God Bless. Thank you!
