Education is one of the very important aspects of human life. It is often said that a child is like a clay that can be molded into any shape but with the education, we can mold the child to grow up to be a better personality and the one with good values to become a better citizen. Providing a child with a better education is a noble task and one of the most honorable things anyone can do. Education can be a light in this dark world which will help a child to get a brighter future. Education opens the door of success and prosperity in one's life. Gaining better knowledge and wisdom is only possible if we have quality education.

The importance of quality education in a child's life is well known by everyone. In today's world, it is very important to give a child a good quality education and this is possible when we have good quality education centers. India being a developing nation does not have very well developed education hubs as compared to the ones available in the developed nation. There are various shortcomings faced by the students in the Indian educational hubs. Therefore various students prefer studying in developed Nations such as Canada, UK, etc.

The universities in those developed Nations provide wide range of career fields to choose for students and provide high opportunity to make their mark in their field. These opportunities are very limited available in our Indian education hubs. There are many capable students of achieving great heights India career but the limitations in the herb education hub does not allow them to achieve their dreams and ambitions. In order to overcome all these issues students prefer studying abroad in developed Nations.

“What sculptor is to a block of marble education is to the human soul.”

-Thomas Addison

This desire of students to study in developed nations in better universities need high amount of funding which cannot be afforded by the student for their families. Many families in India still live under below poverty line and cannot even afford basic education in the country. The student from such family background even if they have high potential for pursuing a better career is not been able to live their dreams. To make your dreams come true one needs to you understand that donations can help overcome the financial challenges faced by the student while studying in in developed Nations.

The Indian students usually prefer for studying at Canada and many of them do get the opportunity to do so but are held back due to such critical financial conditions of their family. These students lose their opportunity and cannot express their full potential and achieve their dreams and goals. As a citizen of the nation, we all can help such students by providing a donation to them. When are Indian students would be well educated and would have the experience of education system of other Nations they can help us develop a better education system and make our country progressive.

“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”

 – Kofi Annan.

The fact that even in the 21st century where India is on the path of progress there are millions of families that still live under the poverty line in India. India is still facing the basic problems of scarcity of electricity, water, hygiene etc. These basic problems appear even very huge due to the size of the population we handle and the land area which is available. Search problems require smarter solution where we can minimize the requirement of space and make full utilization of the resources which are available to us. All these things require well planning and execution. We require excellent doctors, engineers, architects, and IT professionals, etc. for a developing nation to become a developed nation and overcome every issue whether small or big.

The currently available educational facilities cannot give enough amounts of such required professionals to the Indian market. Therefore students who study abroad and return back to the country can help to overcome this crisis of lack of efficient professionals. Not only the development of a country will be better but the economic condition of the family of the student and overall of the whole nation could be benefited and made better by the education of the student in such foreign countries. We can improve our military equipment, infrastructure, communication mediums etc. by implementing the knowledge which students have gained from developed nations. India can become a home for modern technologies and equipment if we start learning better ways of developments from such developed nations. 

“A good education is a foundation for a better future.”

– Elizabeth Warren

The students studying in Canada have to face various hardships along with educational difficulties. They have to cook, clean, carry out all the household work along with their studies. Financial issues are one of the major challenges faced by the Indian students studying in Canada. They have to pay for housing, travel, books, food, medical facilities, and other daily requirements along with their studies. The challenges of these students do not only limit to these things. They suffer from emotional challenges such as homesickness as they have left their friends and family. They find it difficult to cope up with the difference in culture, tradition, food habits, studying environment, academic style, education system, pattern of exams, peer group, etc. the universities of Canada do not support any discrimination between students however, the Indian students find it difficult to get along with their classmates. The feeling of loneliness has an adverse effect on these students emotionally. The Mother Nature also cannot be of significant importance when it comes to ease the problems of Indian students. The climatic conditions of Canada are different from that of India. Long winters and climatic changes in Canada are found difficult to adapt for the students studying there. All these situations are against the student’s favor. Despite of all these difficulties students from India are willing to overcome all the hardships to have quality education and a better future.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

 – Nelson Mandela

The world is changing and to stand strong in the world, we defiantly cannot ignore the most powerful weapon of Education. It is education that helps us to be the strongest in the most adverse condition. Currently, these educate people and the ones who have already gone to Canada for their education are facing many hardships. Due to this COVID-19 pandemic, there are Indian citizens and students who are not been able to come back to India and are staying there. Statics shows that during the month of April nearly 0.3 million Indian citizens were residing in Canada. They were not been able to return to their motherland due to restrictions on international flights. Half of them are students who have been there for studies. Due to all this, COVID-19 is not their only problem but they are facing financial challenges and to overcome this we need to donate for these students studying in Canada. During these tough times, where no place is left safe and traveling is dangerous the willingness of students to get a quality education is the same. Even today students are having the same enthusiasm for studying in Canada. There are many registrations of Indian students in universities of Canada and after the end of the lockdown and resume of all international activities, these students are willing to fly there and pursue their dreams and goal. On seeing such enthusiasm of students towards education, it is our moral duty to support them and provide them with donations as they are of significant importance not only in the current situation but also for the future of the student, nation, and ultimately the whole of mankind.
