Shaid is a 10-year old boy. He and his younger brother, Jigar, who is 4-years old, live in the slum area of Jaipur. Their parents are totally uneducated, and live their lives in darkness. They are from Muslim background. They forced Shaid into the work of collecting waste beer bottles for money. When we came to know all these things, we took the initiative to talk with their parents. Shaid's mother told to us, "Our son earn daily $2.00 by selling empty beer bottles in junk shop. Through that money we get daily meal and pay for some part of his father's medicine (who is very ill)." After hearing all of their problems, we motivated Shaid's parents to send their sons to Children of Hope School.
We shared the need for education to bring a brighter future into Shaid's life and that of Jigar. Also, we gave examples of other slum children who were attending our school daily. It was not easy to counsel his parents, but God helped us. At last they agreed to send Shaid and Jigar to our school, and we encouraged Shaid's mother to seek work so she can take care of her family's needs and the cost of her husband's medicine. Now Shaid does not collect empty beer bottles for money. He comes daily to the Children of Hope School, where he gets a daily afternoon meal and a good education. After seeing all the changes in Shaid's life, his mother started work and became thankful for the school.
