Big smiles were visible today on the innocent faces of these young children, when the whole world was celebrating
Valentine Day and Basant Panchami, ignored of all these celebrations these young kids and their parents were so excited when SEWA Bharti team informed them about this program within their neighbourhood. All hard work to visit door to door, and convincing these familie s about the program for the last two months were the great efforts made by the organisation. Finally more than 60 students are enrolled on the very first day to start their classes at Green Field School Center.
Combining with Swami Vivekanand as his 150th Birth Anniversary, SEWAA Bharti and SFID joined hands to take up the responsibility to bring quality education at the door steps of these poor BPL families especially coming from minorities.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. U.P Gupta, City President Sewa Bharti, urged the parents present there to send their young children who are not able to get any educational support from the family to improve their learning skills. Mr. Ram Tayal,
who is heading and coordinating such centers conducted “POOJA” before starting the classes.
Mrs Reena Jaggi, Head Green Field School offered GFS’s infrastructure to build educated Indians through the light of education and knowledge which GFS is doing for the last two decades , mentioned Mrs Jaggi. Swami Vivekanand Bal Vikas Kendra, is setup with clear aim to improve the quality education among the poor students who otherwise drop from regular schooling due to lack of such backup and financial constraint.
Vijay Laxmi, coordinator “SEWA Bharti” spoke about the other activities like Value and Moral Education, Yoga, Music , which will be provided to these students with kind support from other agencies, responsible business houses and concerned citizens. Volunteers are also welcome to come , contribute their time and teach our young students about various lifelong learning skills, if they can, urged Vijay Laxmi.
As Govt. and Pvt Sectors are also supporting such programs under their sustainable CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) framework, so Swami Vivekanand Bal Vikas Kendra, will seek their support in order to setup more such center across the region, especially in the hills of Uttarakhand and West UP. SFID with CSR support will build vibrant Libraries & Computer centers for these young students in the coming days, said Ritesh Garg, Coordinator SFID.
