The smile and the happiness on the faces of the 120 odd children and their parents said it all. These were the recipients of the 3rd Educational Financial Assistance from our Trust.
The students supported ranged from KG to final year Engineering.
The parents of the students can be categorised into:
a) Around 25% don't have father and the mother is normally a rag picker or having a simple job.b)
b) In around 10% of the cases the father has left home or is a drunkard.
c) Around 40% of them are Rag Pickers or work in the dumping ground.
d) 15% of the parents have menial jobs... The father lifts loads or works on contract basis on a low paying job.
e) Remaining 10% : Some are Watchmen, Postmen, Drivers or people having not so good jobs.
Remember... It could have been possible that we, the privileged ones, were born in the places of the underprivileged ones. But we were lucky... So let us not forget this important factor...... It is fate that has separated the privileged from the underprivileged. Let us share at least a small part of our earnings towards the welfare of the underprivileged.

It would gladden hearts to know that :
There is a boy in the final year Engineering whom we support. The boy delivers milk daily to houses and even on the days of exams. There is also a boy who works night shift to support his family. There is another boy whose father has forsaken family. This boy used to lift loads in the market to support the family. This boy after diploma in engineering is working in Jindal Drilling.
