Creating ‘Umang’ among school students: A Glimpse

Vithalwadi, Kalyan – 03/10/09: Gone are the days when youngsters planned out parties and trips with friends to enjoy the weekend. A group of 20 youngsters enjoyed their Saturday in a more sensible way last week.

This Saturday, the hangout place for these young professionals was a school in Vithalwadi (A small town near Kalyan). Umang Foundation had planned for the Distribution of Notebooks and Stationery to the students of R.K Tripathi Hindi High School in Vithalwadi (East).

Members of Umang Foundation R S Goyal, Sandeep Bhanushali, Yograj Kolhe, Chetan Karkhanis, Deena Sawlani, Anand Prakash, Suni Chanchlani, Roli, Karishma Thakur, Rahul R Gupta, Kirti, Renuka Bhavake, Amit Tyagi, Mohit Gogia, Ashish Choudhary, Pooja Agarwal, Sweta Singh and Ashish Goyal have reached to school on scheduled time of 09:00 AM.

Distribution started with Class 6 students and then followed with the students from Class I to Class X as per their school timings. Umang Foundation’s members were busy preparing the packets for the students as per their Class standards. As the classrooms were not spacious enough, the arrangement was made in an open space just outside the school. Humidity, Load Shedding and scorching hot sun didn’t de-motivate any of the youngsters who usually spend their major time in posh IT offices.

These innocent Students were seen standing in a queue to get their share of packets containing notebooks and stationery as per their Class Standards [Class I to Class X]

Around 500 students were given the packets in separate batches and children were quite excited about it. Distribution was followed with an interactive session with these little kids in their classrooms. Hearing out their future plans and dreams concluded that seriously, ‘Dreams has no boundaries and limitations’. Umang Foundation promised to help these students with such studying materials in future too.

Principal and Teachers of the school were happy with the motivation given to these needy students. Some students expressed their gratitude by touching the feet. The young team of Umang Foundation was overwhelmed with the response of the students and teachers.

Kamana Tripathi, principal of R K Tripathi School has appreciated the efforts made by members of Umang Foundation, she further stated that these kind of activities, helps school students not only in terms of supporting their education but also gives them a picture to become responsible citizen of country and help fellow citizen.

The event was a source of inspiration for the young professionals and entrepreneurs in our country and proved wrong the statement made very popular these days that “Weekend party is the only way to de-stress yourself”. This young team of Umang Foundation has a different perspective though.

Ashish Goyal, Founder, Umang Foundation ended the event by announcing next activity of Diwali Celebration for Old Age Home.
