10 Jamia students deserve national award for turning jungle into makeshift school for deprived kids

Ten students of Jamia Millia Islamia are on a journey to provide education to deprived children. And over months they have turned a jungle land behind Jamia into a makeshift school where they provide labourer children how to read and write for free.

They are teaching twenty five students.

Faiz Chaudhary, one of the students, associated with the social service, told OT.COM: “We are the students of architecture in Jamia. There are some settlements of labourers residing inside the university campus engaged in construction activities on the campus.

“The children are unable to read and write and only a few of them are going to school.

“The children are not even healthy but there is a spark in their eyes for education. They truly want to study.

“We call our work as Parvaaz. We will act as teachers every day to teach them and will also take care of their health. We are building it actually and have somehow built it. We were funded by some of our faculties. Now we need books, bags, medical checkups of the children, proper lunch for the children every day: One glass of milk every day.

“We want to give them life like a wish come true. I know we cannot give them the life of luxury but we will surely improve their life. May god help us through crowd funding and we will surely be able to give their life a better future. The meaning of Parvaaz is originated from the word ‘Udaan’ which means flight.”

Their work has been hailed as revoloutionary by some alumni, including Faizul Haque. “They are doing great service and they should be given award for doing such a wonderful job,” he said.
