Saleha is 16 years old and has just shifted to a new school so she can study Science (with Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and eventually fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor. This dedicated young girl nabbed a coveted spot in the science stream because of her outstanding marks the previous year, when she stood second in her class.
Saleha’s father, formerly a Kalandar who relied on dancing bears for an income, worked for a while in a woodworks company but had to give this up due to his deteriorating health. He now works odd jobs and as a driver to feed his family. He doesn’t think it is viable to send his daughter to school because he feels she must begin supplementing the family income, instead of studying. Saleha has fought hard for her right to study, and makes the most of the chance she’s been given by studying hard and doing well, but she needs help financing her dreams. Would you like to give wings to her dreams?
