Educating others is one of the best activities in the world. In a world where education is a necessity, sharing knowledge with others makes our lives meaningful. As per a report, six million students between the ages of 6 and 13 do not go to school in India. By 10th grade, nearly half of all the students backed out of school.
Due to financial constraints, some are forced to drop out of school after some point of time while others beg on the streets and sell accessories to make a living.
However, people like Mohammad Mahboob Malik is giving back to society when it matters the most. When he came to know there are children from economically weaker sections of the society, he decided to do his bit for them so that they don’t suffer any more in their lives.
Mohammad Mahboob Malik is a tea seller and is providing quality education to 40 children from the income he makes from his tea stall. He spends 80% of his income on educating kids. Let’s take a moment to appreciate this man.
