Prem’s mother was just 3 months pregnant when his father abandoned them. He and his mother were living with their maternal grandparents, but his mother left him when he was 6 years old. 4 years later, his parents’ whereabouts remain unknown.
Prem’s grandfather was a rickshaw driver and used what little income he made to send Prem to a boarding school. Five years ago, Prem’s grandfather passed away. Prem’s grandmother says: “Prem’s grandfather wanted him to be an engineer, and therefore used to work very hard. Due to his old age, he couldn’t survive.” His grandmother had no other option but to leave him with another family. When she was asked why she has left him, she says: “I am uncertain of what I will even eat each day, but if he stays with another family then at least he will get two proper meals in a day.”
Prem has been through a lot of hardship at such a young age. However, he still believes that he will become an engineer and fulfill his grandfather’s dreams someday. With your support, Prem can fulfill the dream instilled in him by his grandfather.
