Make a Donation, to Support Education and Wellbeing
The unprecedented issues created by the pandemic are ever increasing. While some of us may be privileged enough to get by, many others still remain without a source of income, sustenance, or education.
During times when online and digital learning have taken over our traditional classroom- based learning; many students are finding it difficult to continue their education from home due to lack of access to smartphones and laptops. This is especially true in case of girl students since in case of limited access, the male child usually takes precedence in traditional families. The situation is creating enormous levels of stress, depression and anxiety, which according to media reports, have even led to suicides by students.
DAV College, a premier Co educational college of North India, has always taken great pride in its inclusive classrooms. Provide basic amenities such as smartphones and laptops to the underprivileged sections of our society so that together we can support and encourage the holistic wellness and growth of the students. So let us all come together and join hands in fulfilling a student’s dream and ambition by donating our old / used smartphones / laptops or contributing financially towards the campaign. Your donations will be directly used to sponsor a student’s education.
