Recently I went through an article in “Times of India” that surprised me by the effort of four students who donated their pocket money towards their school needs. Every one or the other day some where in the world still people help one another and prove that humanity still exist.
A government school near Kalyan Nagar in Bengaluru was in poor condition and needed repairs and development.
Nidhi Shankar Reddy, a pre-university student whose domestic helper’s son told her about the school’s poor condition, came forward to help for the cause. She realized that unlike her and the others, the less-fortunate students would not have access to necessary facilities.
She roped up with her siblings Neha Reddy an SSLC student, Dhruva Reddy, a Class VIII student, Deekhshitha Reddy, a Class IV student pooled in Rs. 1.5 lakh from their pocket money and handed it over to the school authorities for development and repairs.
As I read in Times of India, She quoted, “We are studying in a well-facilitated school but how are the poor students going to study without the fundamental facilities? So we decided to save some amount from our pocket money for that school’s development work.”
The school has received a new lease of life, with a new toilet, and freshly painted benches and classrooms. Thanks to these wonderful inspiring girls.
