When Sudhir was orphaned at age 5, after the sudden death of his mother, his story became like many of the roughly 25 million orphaned children in India. The difference in his story was that while Sudhir’s mother was alive she had enrolled him in one of the first tutoring classes offered by Sahayak Hath in Pune. Thankfully for Sudhir people who cared knew him. So, when his mother died, Suman and EJ put him in a hostel and continued to be a part of his education by helping with the expenses for his schooling.
After he failed 12th grade/standard, instead of leaving him to figure things out on his own, Suman encouraged him to take up a basic computer course. When he successfully completed the course, she asked him, “What do you want to do now?” He replied, “I will help you.” In 2013, as a way to share what he had learned, Sudhir began teaching the computer classes offered daily by Sahayak Hath. He is a patient teacher and his students are learning important computer skills. Suman hopes that sometime soon he will attend YWAM’s Discipleship Training Course.
