While there have been news reports pouring in the media outlets about the death tolls succumbing to the chilling cold wave across the country, a group of children in far-flung village of Lamjung has received warm clothes to fence themselves from the affect of severe coldness.
The smile was visible in the faces of a hundred of children, mostly from the dalit and deprived communities, while they gathered at the premise of Shree Janakalyan Higher Secondary School in Chiti-3, Tilahara of Lamjung district. The smile among the children was for the temptation to wear the new and warm clothes brought by a team of some youngsters who came from the capital city Kathmandu to their own school.
Smile Right, an organization formed by a group of youth for philanthropic purpose, has managed to collect some 3 hundred pairs of clothes to distribute to the school children in one of the most rural village of Lamjung district. The organization not only collected the clothes to the children but to the guardian also.
The youngsters affiliated with the organization distributed the clothes to the children and their guardian amid a ceremony in the school. Addressing the program, the headmaster of the school Tej Narayan Mandal expressed gratitude towards the youth for supporting the children on behalf of school, children and guardians. Likewise, Chairperson of the School Management Committee, Dayaram Panday, requested the organization and the youths for their help in collecting books for the library of the school. “You have supported clothes to our children which would help children in coping with the coldness,” Panday said, “now we expect you to help us on collecting book for our library which is in dilapidated condition by collecting books. This would help to fill the educational appetite of our children.”
Witnessing the plights of the school children towards the condition of the library, organization’s chairperson Sujana Adhikari made commitment to find support for the library and other infrastructure in coming days.
The organization in the personal capacity of its co-founder has also pledged to cover the educational expenses of a Class 1 student Dipa BK until her 10th grade. BK, from a low-income and deprived family, would now get support on educational expenses.
