Vidya & Child – A Project under Jayaprakash Narayan Memorial Trust
"Let us promote sports, a healthy lifestyle, a life beyond just school books, a life to live one’s passion, realize one’s dreams and bring laurels for their family and our nation!"
"All of the funds I raise this year, through my wonderful friends, will go into promoting sports activities by my CSO partner VIDYA & CHILD. Thank you so much for your support. I will think of you proudly as I bravely pound the pavement in ADHM”, says Sumeet Aggarwal.
Sumeet adds, “Too many nonprofits or NGOs are rewarded for how little they spend — not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, we should start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments. Let’s change the way we think about changing the world. We have to stop treating money as a sin in social change work. There are things in social sector that can't be monetized - How will you monetize the smile of an autistic child? The philanthropy is a market for love. We all need to get our acts together to support this sector and its people who are sacrificing their career and other pleasures of life to bring a good change and supporting the Govt. who cannot do it alone."
Sumeet Aggarwal is supporting Vidya and Child (V&C) this year. The V&C works to bridge the gap for those children who have little or no access to education. Sumeet has been associated with V&C since 2000, and has seen its growth from less than 10 children to over 1600 now. He says that “The V&C offers a holistic approach through intensive Life Skills and Arts & Performing Arts along with academic, financial & mentoring support. It helps each child to explore and identify his or her uniqueness within. The children of V&C are doing great in their life in various fields, while supporting their family.”
Sumeet Aggarwal is a Senior Knowledge Manager at Cadence Design Systems, Inc. He is also a fitness trainer, Founder of fitness group - Xpress Fitness & Running (XFR). Let us Support Sumeet in his wonderful initiative!
Vidya & Child works towards providing opportunities for long term growth and development and for exploring the unique potential in each child.
