Mumbai/Thane, December 28, 2020: EuroSchool has once again proved its commitment to humanity. This time, as a part of community service, EuroSchool Thane, in collaboration with The Light of Life Trust, on the eve of Christmas, took up a noble humanitarian step for the unprivileged students of Vidarbha and Marathwada. To cater to their educational needs, students of EuroSchool Thane from Grade 5 to 10 collected funds of Rs 4 Lakh through an online crowdfunding campaign. This amount will be utilised in providing tabs and smartphones for the virtual education of underprivileged students.
The prime objective of this crowdfunding campaign is to help underprivileged students whose studies are severely disrupted due to lockdown and virtual education as they could not afford the electronic gadget for virtual education. Upon realising the seriousness of the situation, EuroSchool Thane, in conjunction with Light of Life Trust has decided to fulfil the basic necessities of these kids by funding their education to bring smiles on their face this Christmas.
Commenting on the initiative, Jyotsna Mayadas, Principal, EuroSchool Thane, said, “Whether it is emotionally or financially, this pandemic has brought about a profound aversive state of stress among the large sections of our society especially underprivileged children who have been deprived of the basic educational needs in their journey of education. The school unanimously believes that the benefits of education should reach out to every section of society. The work that Light of the Life Trust has done with our students in this direction is exemplary. We are very proud of our students and their parents; who have encouraged them. I would like to express my gratitude to the NGO and wish all students for their bright future who have wholeheartedly participated and contributed in this campaign,” she added.
