Social Responsibility
Widows being provided with rations by the school faculty
The students of Bhavan's SL Public School, Amritsar have been learning important lessons in Social Responsibility ever since the school started conducting a Widow Ration Pension Programme. This programme was started in August 2002 and involves providing monthly ration to 200 widows at the beginning of each month. This distribution is organised by the teachers and students of the school with help from members of Chinmaya Mission. Each widow gets atta, rice, sugar, pulses, spices, vegetables and ghee to the tune of 1000 every month.
A proper survey of the backgrounds of the widows is done to ascertain that they are below the poverty line and have no other means of income. Priority is given to widows with children who are studying. If such a child scores over 75% marks, he is given a scholarship and provided with books and stationary.
The school contributes a sum of 2 lakhs on a monthly basis to this distribution and donations from various other sources are also collected. The efforts of the school to help the destitute and needy must be greatly lauded.
