The dreadful onslaught of pandemic has brought the entire world to a grinding halt rendering millions jobless. The worst has befallen those who lost their breadwinners; particularly growing kids, before they could comprehend the intricacies of life, have lost their parents to the virus.

Some people have courageously come forward to help those in need. In these fragile times, a senior secondary school at Faridabad's Bhupani has been contributing to providing the deprived lots with food and other necessary things needed to combat the deadly infection.

This year, Satyug Darshan school has announced an initiative 'Ummeed, ek asha ki kiran'. "We will provide free boarding or day-boarding education for those meritorious children, who either have lost their parents or guardians to COVID-19 or their family income is impacted due to the pandemic." Neeraj Mohan Puri, the school principal, explained.

This project ensures free education and hostel facility to the deprived students from grade 6 to 12. The school will verify the eligibility of the students; the students must pass an exam to get a berth under this project.

Furthermore, Puri laid emphasis on three different criteria that will select the students: First, students who secure ranks from 1 to 12 in this exam will qualify for the selection. Secondly, students who wish to be a part of the initiative must have a good academic track record in the last two years and finally, the cause of the students’ weak economic background ought to pertain to COVID-19.

"We shall admit 20 students who meet the aforementioned requirements and the Managing Committee will finalise the decision thereafter." Puri concluded by saying.
