Distribution of stationary among 500 school students on September 26, 2009

Saturday 26th of September was yet another action packed day for the members of Umang foundation-a Mumbai based registered NGO dedicated to serve the society and working for its upliftment.

Early Saturday morning, 15 members of Umang Foundation set out from their homes to accomplish the first phase of their dream of providing education material to ten thousand underprivileged, financially needy students each with education materials free of cost. The first event targeted with five hundred students in all from 3 Marathi schools in Kalyan East:-

1. Ganesh Vidyamandir, Kalyan East

2. Nutan Hindi Vidyalaya, Kalyan East

3. Gyan Vidya Mandir, Kalyan East

The venue chosen for the distribution of education material was Ganesh Vidyamandir and students from all the three schools gathered in the school in 2 shifts.

Team Umang reached the venue at sharp 10 am and immediately sat down to prepare sets of a dozen notebooks, pencils, pens, scale, eraser and sharpener as per the requirement mentioned by school administration while collecting data through Kalyan Childline. Sets were prepared keeping in mind the age group of students.

At 12:30 pm, Radhey Shyam Goyal, Trustee of Umang foundation has inaugurated the event by handing over a set of Notebooks to Mrs Swati Dhanuke, Principle of Ganesh Vidya Mandir.

Mrs Dhanuke have appreciated the efforts made by Team Umang by saying that these kind of activities are one of the unique activities of its own type where corporate employees interact and meet our students who dream to become computer engineer, doctor and a responsible citizen of country.

Following to the speech of principal, distribution of notebooks have been started and distributed by the members of Team Umang: Chetan Karkhanis, Ajay Pardeshi, Payal Shah, Amrapali Mathwale, Chetan, Deepak, Sweta Singh, Ashish Choudhary, Pooja Agarwal, Praveen Ochani, Rahul Gupta, Kamal, Pratap Singh Valvi.

Ashish Goyal, Founder of Umang Foundation have started interacting with Kids by asking general knowledge questions, telling them the importance of studies with good marks and how a child can ensure a bright career if he or she keeps a focus on studies.

Members of Team Umang have shared their words with students as what they do in their routine life. Whole event was full of interaction and learning for the kids. The kids ranged in the age group 5 to 15 and seemed to enjoy every bit of their interaction with members of Umang. They participated cheerfully in the event and frequently cheered and laughed during the course of it. The distribution began at 1 p.m. and covered all 500 students in two and a half hours. The kids were all smiles on receiving their packets. Team Umang ended it with a short speech on the importance of education and the students in turn promised to study hard and help at least one needy child with education when they grow up to become responsible citizens.

Umang foundation showed good will gesture by distributing Notebooks & stationary material between 500 students. The event was organized in association with Kalyan Help Line. They helped Umang to identify the talented students from these schools. All the students are doing well in their studies, but they are in need of financial support to make most of their schooling. To make this event successful Ashish Goyal, Founder / Co-founder, Umang Foundation and his team of volunteers worked throughout the day. Team of 15 Umang Volunteers was there to support the event. Umang has done these kinds of events before and in future they are planning to do more.
