In December , we received Requirements of Course Books ( 8th – 12th Hindi medium) , English Grammar and Dictionaries from Shanti Gyan Sewa Trust for children as part of library setup. They are teaching children for many years in morning and evening batch who are less privileged. SGST focus is always to teach children , give them exposure and provide resources so that they get equal opportunities .
In January , we started working on SGST Requirement so that children have access to books much before exams for preparations. Thankfully to anonymous volunteer who donated 7000 Rs and insisted to utilize for Children education only. It was a big day for us as we got much needed support to fulfill SGST requirement.
Gaurav Siddharth supported the cause and gifted 4 Dictionaries for SGST.
We had a discussion with Ms Pushpanjali ji , SGST and planned to Visit Daryaganj for Course Books. Sachin and Vicky from SGST joined me at Chawri Bajar metro station and then headed to Daryanganj for Sunday market on 17th Jan. We planned for Daryaganj market as books are cheaper and can buy more books. Limited funds forced us to buy used books else it could have been new books .
We visited many shops and inquired about required books. Few shopkeepers offered us best discounts( knowing it’s for good cause). After spending 2 hours , we got most of the books as required for SGST. Now they are part of their library and accessible to 60 children.
We wish best of luck to SGST children for exams preparation and will keep supporting SGST education initiative. We will start Books collection campaign soon so that books can be collected and made part of libraries for different education centers run by NGO’s.
