This Sunday morning was not usual for 10-year-old Deepansh when he was trying to make moves on Amir Khan-starrer “Taare Zameen Par” movie’s song “Bum Bum Bhole”. After little effort, he started enjoying the atmosphere along with around 30 other children almost similar in age.
Children like Deepansh gather at the Dwarka Sector-13 on Sundays and other holidays where they learn, dance and enjoy. Steeple Education Society use to organise such events time again.
What is needed to challenge a silent dark… just a small lamp (earthen lamp), smiles Pradeep Kumar Gahlot, the President of Steeple Education Society, a non-profit organisation working for underprivileged children.
With our efforts we do nothing other than give some moments of happiness to these children besides imparting them better ways to live life, said Gahlot.
Currently, under “Padho Aur Badho” (learn and progress) program, the society is imparting free coaching, dance and personality development classes. These apart, the NGO also organises counselling sessions, especially for girls.
The society organises different events for students, boys and girls studying in Class 1 to 8 and living in Dwarka and nearby areas for several years and is now the second meaning of life for them.
Besides society members, we have two teachers and four volunteers with us for this noble cause, said the head, adding that we bear all the expenses right now for expansion we need funds.
We are also planning educational tours for these children and have started approaching contributors as soon as we get this we’ll be able to help these ‘innocent flowers’ some more, concluded Gahlot.
