For a generous person like Dharamveer, giving back to society matters to him more than anything else in this world. He always feels a great sense of accomplishment when he brings a beaming smile in underprivileged children’s faces. Well, what did he do to turn the pages of children’s lives? Let’s find out.
Dharamveer, a cop in Rajasthan has set a great example by starting the school back in January 2016 to the ones who come economically weaker sections of the society. He came to know that a lot of children were begging near the police station and was really hard for him to see such things and he immediately made up his mind to do something to bring a change in their lives.
After talking to those kids, he learnt they did not have parents and those less unfortunate ones had no other option but to beg on the streets for a living. Dharamveer also went to the slums and noticed how hard their way of living was.
Dharamveer wanted to give these children a bright future and rightly so, he started admitting these children to the school. The school named ‘Apni Pathshala’ is welcoming children to study at its premises. What started as one or two now has an overall count of 450 children.
Moreover, a van has been arranged in such a way that these kids don’t have to walk to and fro long distance as they can get to board the vehicle for a free drop service. On top of that, they are also provided with clothes, shoes, food, and study materials (everything free of cost).
Jakhar explained how they motivate children to study well for a bright future. He further added, saying that: “There are many families who come from UP and Bihar to work here. We have motivated their children to study and not to stop once they go back to their native lands. Some children have been allowed to collect garbage as their parents won’t allow them to come otherwise. So we decided to let them do it after school. This way at least they get to come.”
But there is only one problem which they are facing and which is there is no support from the state government, as claimed by Jakhar. “With the help of the police, society and education department, we can change their lives.
These children should have special schools and separate staff to take care of them. They will never come to school on their own and there should be people dedicated to bringing them out of their miseries,” he said.
