Educational Financial Assistance to the Needy:
On the 24 th of July we will be providing financial assistance to around 125 needy students to help them to pursue their studies.
The parents of the students can be categorised into:
a) Around 25% don't have father and the mother is normally a rag picker.
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 Watchman, Postmen, Drivers or people having not so good jobs.
There is a boy in the final year Engineering whom we support and he 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 JSW.
This year we will be taking the TB awareness campaign on a stronger footing.
