    This fundraiser will benefit

    Sultan Shaikh

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra, India

Sultan Shaikh is going to complete two years (4th semester) of his four-year production engineering degree from Fr. Conceicao  Rodrigues College of Engineering popularly known as Father Agnel College in Bandra West, Mumbai. It is heartening to see his impressive performance in the class despite all odds. He has secured 8.03 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) out of 10 in the class till now and prepping up for 4th semester final exam in May 2018.

I would like to thank you all for contributing to #HelpSultan campaign through crowd-funding portal Milaap last year.
He credit his success till now to all the contributors, through Milaap fundraising platform, who have whole-heartedly contributed to his previous #HelpSultan campaigns run by me in 2016 and 2017.  His annual academic fee and other expenses comes to around Rs 2 lakh and your contributions in last 2 years have helped him realize his dream of chasing his engineering dream as income of his father is too less to fund his engineering fee.

His 3rd academic year (semester 5th & 6th) will be starting from July 2018 and the tuition fee for this year as well is likely to be more than the last of Rs. 1,30,000 excluding other expenses like books, stationary, digest, assignment sheets, travelling etc.
Sultan's family is still stays in the same 10×12-feet rented room in Bharat Nagar slum near BKC in Bandra (East) for past several years along with all the five members (father, mother, younger brother and a younger sister). It has been a quite difficult for Sultan to stay and study in this 10x12 rented room. Due to redevelopment in the area most of the neighbours have shifted to buildings and his room along with few others are also at the verge of getting demolished. They will have to look for another small rented room nearby. Sultan's father Mustafa is financially very weak and runs a rented saloon in a Masjid in Bharat Nagar. He earns not more than Rs. 10 to 15 thousand per month and cannot afford to pay to engineering fee of bright student like Sultan as he has to send money to his parents in village apart from running his family in Mumbai. Sultan is eldest of them all and his two siblings Fiza and Zeeshan are studying in government school in Bharat Nagar and Kala Nagar in Bandra East.

While we contribute whatever we can to fund his study, its not enough to fund his annual fee fully and other ongoing course expenses round the year.  

Milaap came as a great saving platform which not only help people raise money for such noble cause but also support in the entire campaign process advising and supporting continuously. Sultan has been part of a project team which was involved in building a motorcar and visited Chandigarh for presentation to present their project to the local university in Chandigarh.

This year also I am confident that you will support #HelpSultanBecomeEngineer campaign to raise money for his third year fee and help realize Sultan's dream of becoming an engineer after completing this course successfully and thereby enabling his family to come out of the current financial condition and lead better life.

Look forward to your support and sharing this campaign with your friends and relatives so that this campaign reaches maximum people and help Sultan get the required money to fund his 3rd year fee and meet other expenses.

Thanking You.
