एक 37 साल का नौजवान, जिसने बच्चे पैदा करना पसंद नहीं किया और अब 120 लड़कियों का पिता है। हम आपको उनकी कहानी प्रस्तुत करते हैं।
This story should actually be treated as an inspiration for those who have been willing to bring the change in the society.
Jaswinder Singh deserves a lot of love and respect for his will and interest to help those girls fulfilling dreams of 120 girls.He is an inspiration for the world filled with evil.
One day, he reached out to his friend named Sonal, who is the founder of NGO Protsahan. He requested her to permit him to do some volunteer work for Protsahan.
It was in the year 2016 when Sonal (Jaswinder’s wife now), invited him to the centre in Uttam Nagar and it was when Jaswinder’s life changed.
“On my first visit, I was there, the kids after their evening meditation, they hugged me. And it was a whole new world for me. All the girls hugging me one after the other, that entire experience, that one day at Protsahan, changed me, and from that moment on I was a new person, a different person.”
"ਮੇਰੀ ਪਹਿਲੀ ਫੇਰੀ ਤੇ, ਮੈਂ ਉਥੇ ਸੀ, ਬੱਚੇ ਸ਼ਾਮ ਦੇ ਸਿਮਰਨ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ, ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਗਲੇ ਲਗਾਇਆ। ਅਤੇ ਇਹ ਮੇਰੇ ਲਈ ਇਕ ਪੂਰੀ ਨਵੀਂ ਦੁਨੀਆਂ ਸੀ. ਸਾਰੀਆਂ ਕੁੜੀਆਂ ਇਕ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਇਕ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਜੱਫੀ ਪਾਉਂਦੀਆਂ ਹਨ, ਉਹ ਸਾਰਾ ਤਜ਼ਰਬਾ, ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਪ੍ਰੋਟਸਾਹਨ ਵਿਚ, ਮੈਨੂੰ ਬਦਲ ਗਿਆ, ਅਤੇ ਉਸੇ ਪਲ ਤੋਂ ਮੈਂ ਇਕ ਨਵਾਂ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ, ਇਕ ਵੱਖਰਾ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਸੀ।" Jaswinder Singh said.
It has been over two years now, Jaswinder Singh and other members of Protsahan are working ‘for at-risk adolescent girls’.
Jaswinder Singh, the current Director, Advocacy & Communications at Protsahan, and his team members are constantly working on changing the chapters of 120 girls from slums in Delhi by assisting them to get quality education so that they can stand on their own leg and make their dreams come true.
“Some time ago, this happened. We were sitting with a bunch of these kids and we were out for some kind of an event, there were about 10 odd kids, me and Sonal. We sat down for dinner and some of these kids were like squeamish about yeh ni khana ya woh nhi khana, ya eating slow ya eating fast, or just not eating. And telling them ki theek se khao and yeh khao and woh khao, you know. Some of these kids are like Sonal mam is like a mom, and Jass bhaiya is like a dad. That’s what I like, and I’m happy with,” Jaswinder Singh added.
“It’s like a feeling of giving everything in me, everything I can do, for these kids to make a difference in their lives. If one of the girls all she needs is for me to sit with her, and just listen to her talk and just be there for her, I’d happily want to do that. I would want to do that any time of the day. I don’t know how to explain that, but I think that’s what it means, that I would want to do anything and everything that I can,” he concluded.
