Gurgaon students show the way, set up NGO to help poor kids
At this tender age, when students enjoy their teenage days by playing games and taking motorcycle rides with their closest pals, four Gurgaon students have established an NGO to help underprivileged children take on their dreams and talent.
ANGAD SINGH, Gautam Gupta, Sheffi Tiwari and Vathul M Balasubramanian are not just students (Standard IX and X) of Amity International School, Sector 46, Gurgaon. They have got the people of Gurgaon talking by forming an NGO, Discover I, so as to help poor kids towards a better future. They drew this idea when they were involved in a school competition, Youth Power, where everyone had to work on a social cause.
It has just been six months since the NGO was formed. Still, they have already done whatever little things can be done in order to make their project successful. The Times of India
reports that these students have selected around 25 students to train them on various aspects such as dance, music, arts and craft. These students believe that every child has a hidden talent, which needs to be spotted.
They seem to have modelled their project on the lines of the blockbuster movie Taare Zameen Par, which reflected, every child is special. Parents have always emphasised on the importance of education, but they need to analyse, where does the interest of the child lie? Are these students going to change the parents’ thinking pattern? For this to happen, these bunch of selected students by the NGO under the project should excel in it.
These students by doing such kind of work are sure to make their parents proud along with the school and teachers. They surely need everyone’s backing so as to make an impact in the society. One may think that these students are losing track of their academics but they are keeping a fine balance between their NGO and school work.
