I come from Lakhimpur village. I could not attend the village school because my father had no money. But I always wanted to study. One day God heard my prayers. We were told that a Swami was coming to meet children and their parents. The meeting was arranged in the house of the land owner where my parents worked as laborers.
First Mataji called all the children and told them about AIM for SEVA, where children could stay and study free of charge. Of the thirty children present, nine were selected. I was lucky to be one of them. We all came to Lucknow. We met children from Bihar, Allahabad, Sitapur, Mirzapur and Nepal. We were thirty in all. We were all put in the same school. So we went together to school. Our Principal took special care of us. She calls us Ashram children.
I feel at home in the Ashram. AIM has made my dream come true. I have been promoted to grade six.
Mataji always tells us that AIMs is able to do all this because many kind people are sending donations. I thank you with my heart. Now when I go back for summer vacation I shall share what I have learnt with some children of my village.
