In an attempt to give underprivileged students access to books they may not otherwise be able to read, Sangeeta and Lalit Yadav, residents of Malibu Towne and founders of Learn to Serve Foundation, recently started a library for children from Class I to Class XII at Shivaji Park, Khandsa, in Gurgaon.
The chief guests at the inauguration were Raghuvendra Bhatt, acharya of Shringri Peeth Veda Pathshala, Sheetla Mata Mandir, Gurgaon; Ashok Diwakar, vice-chancellor of Starex University; Sukhbir Chauhan, member of Haryana Jal Sunrakshan Samiti; and educationists Sanjay Verma and Mehram Yadav. The inauguration was also attended by Sunita Yadav, newly elected councillor of Ward 22.
Spread across 300 square yards and currently home to 2,000 books, the library aims to fill the gaps in the kids’ education. There is also a teacher available to guide the children who come in to study and make notes.
Speaking to City Spidey, Sangeeta Yadav said, “It is an investment that pays precious interest. The idea is to sow the seeds of education early in these children’s lives.”
She added, “We also really thank all those guests and residents who invested their valuable time lending a helping hand for this library to be set up. Thousands of students’ futures can be shaped by this one objective.”
