A School for the Underprivileged

An intense desire to serve the underprivileged and her love for children prompted Ms. Ruchie Mittal to spearhead a humanitarian effort. Moved by the plight of labourer’s children at one of the construction sites of a residential project by CHD Developers Ltd., she initiated and conceptualized the setting up of a special Crèche to provide basic amenities for these children.

Her dream has finally taken shape. The crèche was started in June 2011 with an aim to provide a shelter for the children who used to loiter around in the construction site earlier. The crèche provides shelter to around 22 children and this number is expected to grow.

The crèche not just provides a safe haven to these children; it also offers them basic amenities. Indoor toys and games which was a far-fetched reality for these children have been provided to them. The swings outside the crèche can be seen with smiling faces playing blissfully.

Being the Director at Aadyant School, Ms. Mittal understands the importance of education in these formative years when the shape of the kid’s future is moulded. Taking note of this she felt that education for these children was a priority. The students are provided with stationary, reading and practice books (Hindi, English and Math). A number of teachers have been employed to impart knowledge to these children.

She says, “I have always believed that it is our duty to reach out to the underprivileged sections of the society in any way we can. These children of our labourers at our projects have been provided with loving care and shelter. I truly believe that the children should not be deprived of the basic necessities and a good education. This effort will definitely bring about a positive change in the lives of these children”

Taking this commendable step to another level, Ms. Ruchie Mittal is now initiating setting up more such crèches at the construction sites of other projects which is bound to spread more smiles and bring a ray of hope in the lives of many other such children.
