My Story:

Saam is a good student with a very good GPA. He is 13 years old and in first grade of middle school, living in Lahijan in the Province of Geelan. His father had been addicted to opium and jailed several times. His mother, under enormous pressure from finances, has had to divorce his father. She had to give up all rights to any financial help due to the divorce and makes a small living through selling what she cooks. Saam's father passed away few years ago and his mother has been able to provide a poverty level living for Saam and his sister, in a rental. She has been able to receive a minute amount from the government which pays for the rent and some of their expenses but she desperately needs financial assistance to keep Saam and his sister in school and provide for them.
