School Students & Teachers Contribute 3 lacs for Nepal
Chandigarh, May 27: Volunteers of a local NGO-Yuvsatta with generous contributions of students and teachers of three Schools, St. Stephen's School, Sector 45, Gurukul Global School, Manimajra, Chandigarh and Satluj Public School, Panchkula, raised three lacs rupees, with two lacs coming from St. Stephen's alone for reconstruction of a Government School in Nepal.

Sharing the information Pramod Sharma, Coordinator of Yuvsatta said that in the devastating recent earthquake in Nepal, besides the enormous loss of life and property over 5000 Schools also got damaged and according to UNICEF three million children are in danger. So they're in touch with local NGO's in Nepal and have identified Mahendra Lila Government Higher Secondary School, at Gorkha District of Nepal. This School was badly damaged in the recent earthquake and now on coming May 30, their three member team led by Reeta Kohli, Addl. Advocate General of Punjab will be reaching there with the donations to get the reconstruction started.

Parveen Setya, Founder of Gurukul Global School added that as close neighbours, India and Nepal share a unique relationship of friendship and cooperation characterized by open borders and deep-rooted people-to-people contacts of kinship and culture. That's the simple reason that their School participated in this fund-raiser.

"I know a lot of people want to do something, but lots of them think someone else will do it so they don't have to," said Seema Gupta a teacher at St. Stephen's School "But, in reality, if they don't do it, then how can we be sure anyone is getting helped?"

Principal of Satluj Public School Krit Serai shared that watching news of traumatized people in Nepal, they felt very sad and their teachers decided to contribute from their side to contribute to the cause.

Expressing his concerns Louis Lopez, Headmaster of St. Stephen's School, said "Caring for others is among the most important lessons that we teach, even though it is not a part of the mandatory curriculum. Our job is to teach students social responsibility and how to respond when they see people in need."
