03 Feb Bringing a smile to the faces of the students
“Halpe Maha Vidyalaya” is a state run school situated in the Ella locality. The annual sports meet of the school is one of the most sought after events for students – celebrated as the single occasion in which they get to showcase their talents on the track and field.
However this year, the sports meet which is usually held in the last week of January got unusually delayed. The school wasn’t able to conduct the sports meet as the school grounds was overgrown with high grass and wild plants.
The school did not have the financial capacity to clear off the ground in time for the sports meet, nor the low income families of the students,had any financial means to contribute towards the equipment required to clean up the overgrown grounds.
Upon a request by the school principal, UHE foundation came forward to contribute the machinery and labour required to clear off the grounds.
Thought a bit later than scheduled, the sports meet was held eventually. Above all, we are glad, that we managed to put smiles on those innocent faces.
