My Story:

Ali Akbar is a talented 12-year-old student from Zabol. He lost his father to heart disease and lives with his mother. He is the only student in the family with three older sisters who are married. The family’s only income is from a monthly government subsidy and a small child care donation from a charity organization. However, this is not enough to support Ali Akbar’s education and living expenses. The property they live on has four unfinished bedrooms, which were under construction by Ali Akbar’s father prior to his death. Their refrigerator and stove are nearly inoperable and they cannot afford to replace them. Under these circumstances, Ali Akbar needs help and support to continue his education.
