Mr. Balu Pawar and Mrs. Sangeeta Balu Pawar are disabled and married to each other. They live near Kopargaon Railway Station. Their disability does not stop them from living a life which is full of love, laughter and togetherness. If you meet them, their smiling faces will make you forget your own sorrows.
However, daily life of Mr. Balu and Mrs. Sangeeta’s family is full of challenges. Balu drives his 3 wheeler cycle to Kopargaon Railway station a kilometer away from their hut. He sells some readymade food items there and makes mere 50-100 Rs. a day. Mrs. Sangeeta is housewife and takes care of their two daughters Gayatri aged seven and Pallavi aged 5. She stays back at home.
With their mere income and daily challenges posed by disability they find it extremely hard to buy electricity for their hut. Their poverty have forced them to live in darkness. Their daughters don’t get access to light after school.
So we decided to donate our first Solar Lamp to Balu Pawar and his family. We hope this small contribution will help in lightening up lives of Balu’s family and their daughters will get an access to clean light for studying.
Keshav is studious, talented and science lover. He participates in various science exhibitions, quiz competitions etc. His teachers are very happy with his academic performance.
Keshav’s village does not have access to uninterrupted electricity. They spend most of the nights in dark. Keshav always complained to his parents about not having enough light during night study sessions. Kerosene lamp they have in their home is not sufficient for an entire family. Same kerosene lamp is used for various purposes which includes cooking, other household chores, farm visit during night. And Keshav does not get access to it for his studies.With increasing prices of kerosene many families are finding it hard to buy sufficient kerosene for an entire family.
We got introduced with Keshav when his school teacher Mr. Yogesh Janrao heard about our Mission Suryoday and urged us to donate one such lamp to Keshav.
Mission Suryoday team is very happy to help Keshav in his studies and wishes him for his bright future.
