John Holmes rightly said, “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” As we enter Joy of Giving week, we invite you to become part of our act of giving to students.
VSM has received numerous requests from students over the last two years to provide laptops so that they can attend online classes and complete their projects. The pandemic has altered the way students are taught in schools and colleges today. Though students have started going to schools and colleges, our new styles of teaching are continuing to be part of way of teaching.
According to a case study published in October 2021 by UNICEF (Situation Analysis on the Effects of and Responses to COVID-19 on the Education Sector in Asia), only 37% of children in higher grades (Grade 9 and above) in India received learning materials; a startlingly low figure. The students are severely hampered when they do not have these technologies.
As they return to campus, students must now also purchase uniforms, stationery, lab courts, and pay their mess fees, among other things. We often take these small things for granted, but when given to a deserving student, they can make all the difference.
Keeping this in mind, we are celebrating the ‘Joy of Giving’ from Oct 2 to Oct 8, 2022, during which you can give specific gifts to students and make a real difference in their lives:
We invite you to be part of this wonderful journey and bring positive change to the lives of needy & deserving students.
