We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the teachers, students and parents whose benevolent contributions towards Sevamritam and Sealing of Desire has helped Amrita Vidyalayam to reach out to the Adivasi village of Ursegaon, situated in Dahanu Taluka of Palghar District. Each ‘pada’ consists of about 80 households and is currently facing acute shortage of food and essential commodities. Principal Brni. Rekha invited a few villagers to the school along with their children.
The school came to know about their difficulties through Ms. Sushmita Gaonkar, representative of an NGO, Shiv Sahyadri Pratishthan. The school donated around 300 kg of rice, clothes and stationery items consisting of 200 pencils and pens, 60 geometry boxes, 275 notebooks, drawing books and story books for the children attending the Zilla Parishad school situated in the village.
Our students helped the teachers to neatly pack the rice into gunny bags and books in cartons. The visiting children were initially a bit shy, but enjoyed interacting with our students. The villagers thanked the school for this initiative and also invited us to visit them.
