    Attaullah Shaikh

    from Nawada, Bihar

Hi, I am Attaullah Shaikh and I belong to a small village of Nawada, Bihar, India called as Mahrama. I belong to a family who had never seen how a school looks alike and never been schooled due to financial problems of grandfather. Here in my village there is no proper schooling system except government schools where the teachers only come to the school once or twice in a week. This type schooling system in the village creates a huge gap in the children's education and that happened with my education and overall holistic development of myself, I was really really far behind in everything when my family left the village in 2014 and decided to move to Pune for better education and a stable job of my father. My father looked up schools for me and my siblings in Pune but non of the schools were willing to give admission to us cause we had Hindi medium education in my village and we were really far behind in every aspects of our education. We had to wait for a year until we found a government school and took admission there to continue our education in English medium but that was not easy for me , I kept on struggling and struggling to cop up the 5 year's of education in one year meanig I had to start everything from scratch. I was bullied for being from Bihar state, I was laughed at for not being good in studies by the school. Despite all of this I pulled up myself from all of this mess and finally completed my 10th and I am the first one in my family who has graduated 10th. I always wanted to learn and grow from my childhood but there were not many resources available for us in the village. I was also accepted to study at UWC Mahindra College on full scholarship based on my achievements and hard work that have I showed up from 6th grade as my education started from 6th grade onwards. Since locked down in 2019 in Pune things had been very challenging for us to sustain in Pune. My father used to work as a cook for different catering business which prepares food for large parties and other gatherings. As the lockdown approached in Pune the catering business never opened again. We used to live on rent in Pune and we were runing out of money after 6th months of lockdown and when we couldn't pay the rent for few months the landlord threw our stuffs on the road and we had no other way to sustain ourselves in Pune hence we decided to move to our village the same place where we were before. When we came to our village life became more difficult for us, we didn't have money to buy rations and other daily essentials and I had to start working on different, different fileds to support my family by earning only ₹ 500 in a day and there were just to many expenses to pay and no other support. There was I had to sell my smartphone to look after my family. My father has diabetes and he had to discontinue his medicines cause we didn't have that much money. My siblings education was discontinue cause we didn't have enough money to buy smartphone for them for online classes. My education is right now on hold cause I didn't have enough money to take an admission for my 12th education. Life just has been very difficult for us here in my village. Due to covid I have lost one of my siblings and cause of that we are going through a lot of mental pain and financial instability as well. We really need your help at the moment, I would really appreciate you generous help for forever and would love to help you in the time of need. If you could help with whatever amount that would really count towards this campaign. Gratitude to each and all of you from my heart. Also would love to connect with you. I love you all! ❤🙏

This how the funds will be used, I am looking at my college fee around 100k ₹ , my two siblings school fee around 50k ₹ each for one year fee and their books. Recently I have sold my phone cause I needed some money urgently, I use my friend's phone to communicate. The college (UWC Mahindra College) I was studying in earlier took the laptop that they gave me after my expulsion, and I don't have a laptop for my college. I have to buy books for my college as well. We don't have enough rations and foods. Other expenses such as electricity bills, gas bills. And the most important my father's medicines for his diabetes. Their is about 10k ₹ spent every month excluding other expenses mentioned above. Currently I am looking colleges in Pune and need to take admission ASAP and then I have to go to Pune to write the boad exam in March or April and also I have to find a place to live in Pune. Hence I would need some more help with money as I can't run fundraiser each time and as it's so time consuming, so I can focus more on my education. I would really appreciate your each penny you contribute towards this cause. Thank you all and I love you so much! ❤
