A middle-class woman takes the challenge of helping underprivileged

Dear Group Members, To further add value to our Dialogue, from this post onwards we will start to share a Positive Story, at least once a week. Hope this will spur some of the Group members to share their own experiences which have impacted the lives for better. Look forward to your active participation as always.

The story is not about the huge effort undertaken or monumental changes in the lives of others, but the small and regular effort which have resulted in improving the lives of some underprivileged. The best part of the story is that it could be replicated almost by any of us to make the difference.

Ramola Kumar, Dean of Delhi School of Communication, Neb Sarai, Delhi alongwith some of her colleagues has been teaching English language to some of the kids living in nearby slums continuously for last several years. In 2005 her employees brought to her attention that a few underprivileged children wanted to improve their English as they were not coping well in their schools. Rather than ignoring the requests or just passing the buck on the system, she decided to do something about it. Hence she alongwith some of her colleagues started teaching them for couple of hours on daily basis in one of the class rooms, after the regular Institute classes were over. The classes are not only improving English of the children for scoring better marks, it is improving their confidence and hence outlook in the life. Some of the students have even landed with better jobs after they have finished their schooling.

  1. Aw, this was a seriously good submit. In thought I’d like to put in writing similar to this moreover – taking time and actual effort to create a rather superior article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to obtain some thing completed.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
